roots lyrics



This is a song for the Autumn Equinox. A tale of the Narcissus bulb.



down

down

down

down


deep and dark

right within the heart

we slumber in the earth

buried in this land of old

where tales of life grow cold

no, deep and dark

right within the heart

that's where the story starts

buried in this land of old

here's how the stories told

-

the leaves they fall

laid to rest but resting not at all

time to return into the soil

the growth above feeds growth below

our roots reach down

-

down

down

down

down


it may not show

but deeper than you know

we're reaching in the dark

with the fading of the light

exploring our inner night

you can't see

the work inside of me

this tangled web I weave

buried in this land of old

steadily i'm taking hold

-

the leaves they fall

laid to rest but resting not at all

time to return into the soil

the growth above feeds growth below

our roots reach down

-

down

down

down

down


in the dark, the earth will hold and nurture

in the springtime growth is born within her

life doesn't start in the light

over winter laying our foundations

building strength on inner revelations

life doesn't start in the light

life doesn't start in the light

-

oh, the leaves they fall

laid to rest but resting not at all

time to return into the soil

the growth above feeds growth below

our roots reach down

-

down

down

down

down


down

down

down

down


down

down

down

down


down

down

down
