New Ground

From the album In The Hospital Buy Now

- looking at loss from a different perspective

NEW GROUND

The leaf falls from the tree    

The sap runs deep               

Snow in the winter                

Covers seeds that sleep         

Sun melts the ice                   

And the warm Earth gives       

Water to the sprouts              

And the green world lives.       

 

Chorus:  Watch for a sign          

Keep your heart alive              

The spirit breaks new ground   

Whenever something dies         

Watch the shadows closely        

The tears will clean your eyes    

The spirit breaks new ground   

Whenever something dies        

 

You may have lost a toy

You may have lost a dream

You may have lost a friend

Someone who you need

Your chest can feel the pain

That makes it hard to breathe

But your love will always stay

And the pain will leave.

Chorus (x2)
