True and Green

lyrics

When I was a seed, not yet in my knowing
I had yet to bleed- or see the open sky
Waiting on the season, the water wasn’t falling
Was buried in the earth, waiting for the time

Then the storm came down the mountain
Cracked me open, split the seam
Then the storm came off the mountain-
I am sprouting, true and green
I am sprouting, true and green

Now I’m a little older, leaves have long been showing.
Trouble cross the meadow, bends me to the dirt.
Sun it starting shining, and I rose up and rode it
I stood up and showed it, regardless of the burn.

Then the storm came down the mountain
Cracked me open, split the seam
Then the storm came like a fountain
I’m sprouting, true and green
I’m sprouting, true and green.

Many seasons passed, since I hid small and shy
Away from changin’ season, away from all the light
Now from nature’s teachin, I’m blooming day and nighttime
And I can love the power, of storm and earth and sky…
