Lyrics

one year ago I sent a few important words out into the world
last night they came fluttering back
grown and urgently pressing themselves against my ears
I listened to every whisper
this time I understood more so than when I first spoke
they were clear and gracious and swift
a light that shone to lead to a land almost found

from the ground I pulled myself up like a root
I planted my feet into that earth who spoke those few important words.
