ground & grow

Am, G, C

only here till we leave again
so can you tell me friend
why must all these people be so cold

years pass by like seconds
forests fall and we ignore the wreckage
why must destruction be so beautiful

well I’ve been meditating lately
lovin’ all and forgiving daily
mendin’ the gap between the young and old

people come and go I know this
but it’d be a disgrace a disservice
to tie this branch around and through this rope

I know I know I know
Sometimes things don’t work out
And you have nowhere to go

I know I know I know
Sometimes you’ll have doubts
But they will help you ground and grow
Ground and grow

I’m a tin man and you’re my oil
I’m your seed and you're my soil
Or whatever makes that metaphor make sense

I’m a student and you’re my goddess
And if I’m bein’ true and honest
I can’t wait till I see you again

But stories are erased and they change direction
And how could we catch all the quick connections
When everyone fears what people think of them

These are my thoughts, my experience
So think whatcha want and don’t take me serious
I'll still call you brother, sister, friend

I know I know I know
Your lover locked you out
Left you shiverin’ in the cold

I know I know I know
Just exhale through your mouth
It’ll help you ground and grow
Ground and grow

Ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah
Ah ah ah

Well to be honest I’m not too sure I've earned this
But I will live this life of service
If it sends a subtle smile across your face

We all take time to heal
and lovin’ is the only thing real
At least that’s what an old soul sang to me

So I will hold my arrow true
Mindfully aim before I shoot
I'll Weave this web of consciousness carefully

And When the lights go out
Cup your hands, give my name a shout
We’ll sing around the fire while the others sleep

I know I know I know
I’ll be by your side
When the ruins start to fall

I know I know I know
There’s chaos in the skies
But it’ll help us ground and grow
Ground and grow

years pass by like seconds
forests fall and we ignore the wreckage
why must destruction be so beautiful
