New Ground

Spirit

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.
