Looking back, what I’ve seen since leaving the almond tree, it still grows from a place no one knows, it’s secrets sleep down below, and carry on...

It’s always there, like the sea, and always so honestly, like a song, without words, I can see, and know wear it longs to be,
carry on..

I’ve seen enough, to know your real
So now I know, I want to heal.
I took a flower, brought it home, and watched it dry out alone, colours lost...
wondered where they had gone
taken by the summer sun with it’s with hands,
I caught the tears from my face my heart didn’t want to waste memories, finally
I could see how much it all meant to me.
carry on...

I’ve seen enough, to know your real
So now I know, I want to heal.
We’ve come this far to know you’re real,
So know I know I want to heal,

I took my tears to the tree, sat quietly on it’s knee, in the breeze
blossoms fell from it’s hand, blue silently across the lands and carried on…
