Mother

This city is on fire tonight Sweet forest fire silent and unseen The sleepers awaken Your eyes are open I know you're smiling at me Some people say you're not here anymore But your trees stand proud And laugh and let them pass So mischievous and holy And this is a question I'll never want to ask There's a moon out there And she wants to be growing There's a river down here And she wants to go back to the sea I am your child, mother Crying to be consoled I recognize you now Do you recognize me? There's a part of me that wants to be silent Immersed in your movement Stung by your grace And here is your song, I'll sing it I'm coming home I've never been away There's a moon out there And she wants to be growing There's a river down here And she wants to go back to the sea I am your child, mother Crying for you to console me Now that I know you Do you recognize me? There's a moon out there And she wants to be growing There's a river down here And she wants to go back to the sea I am your child, mother Crying to be consoled Now that I know you Recognize me!
