lyrics

i don't walk the same
i don't know how to relate
but i can sing without shame

i never agreed to this game
and i don't know how to play
what are we trying to make

and like all natural things
keep lifting up each new beginning
no need to tell them how to grow
they just know

i don't repeat the phrase
i wouldn't want to be fake
so i don't even say anything

but i still know what you mean
i see it well in your face
and in your other peculiar ways

and like all natural things
keep lifting up each new beginning
no need to tell them how to grow
they just know


be like the flocks each season
gathering strength to journey home
no need to tell them where to go
they just know

be like the rushing rivers
waiting to join the greater flow
no need to tell them where to go
they just know

be like the rising treetops
searching for sun to feel its glow
no need to tell them where to go
they just know

be like the roots' long fingers
feeling the earth to learn to grow
no need to tell them where to go
they just know


i'll strive
to be close
and to hold you
tight enough

that the first
thing you know
is how well
you are loved

oh the dream
of the places
i'll go
with you someday

whether i
must leave or stay
know i'll
be with you always

yes i'll try
to be near
and to hold you
tight enough

so the first thing
you know my dear
is how well
you are loved
