lyrics

Roots

The green leaves have all turned to red and brown
There’s a north wind blowing in to bring them all down
Into the river and away on down the stream
until the next spring brings back all the winter’s dreams

When a tall tree grows above my head and roots beneath my feet
I hope there’ll be no stone unturned to keep me from my sleep
When you have a moral and an ending of your own
I hope they’ll think to spread your ash upon my modest home

And this won’t kill us
It will just make us stronger
All the same
if I were to choose
I’d like to stay right here with you
to laugh and to love and to live just a little bit longer

When a tall tree grows above my head and roots beneath my feet
I hope there’ll be no stone unturned to keep me from my sleep
When you have a moral and an ending of your own
I hope they’ll think to spread your ash upon my modest home
For that tall tree’s leaves will one day fall and not again return
Dirt and rain and worms and wind will help a young seed learn
We’ll be dirt and we’ll be rain and worms and wind and sun
And we will live forever more as one
Forever more as one
