lyrics

They called her Wildflower
In honor of the spring
She didn’t know her power
Until the season’s change
Surrounded by cigarettes
Styrofoam and rain
She had settled for the
Prospect of a deign

They called him Root because
He hid behind the scenes
Pressured by bulbs and weeds
And other natural things
He grew inside his home
And crawled among the earth
So no one really saw
His precious worth

These treasures, garlands of beauty
Trapped in the phrase
They never knew me
Find us, love what we’ve got to give
Cause we have so much to give

One day the temperature
Began to sink real low
Clouds hovered, birds requite
And leaves died in the snow
Root grew and peeked right through
The land he knew as sky
To find a wild flower
Smiling at him through the pines

These treasures, garlands of beauty
Trapped in the phrase
They never knew me
Find us, love what we’ve got to give
Cause we have so much to give

And when the heat rose back
The two stood in the open
Debuted and welcomed by the world
Like they’d been hoping
Fear died and by each side
They lived agreeably
Wild and secure,
Content to be and to be free
