dirt

well i found the life inside of me
opened my eyes to set it free
and i looked at you for long enough
i was sure what i wanted
and you know it hurt when i heard you lying

thats the way of our mother earth
all flowers turn back into dirt
i was waiting here for long enough
i was sure what i wanted
and you know it hurt when i found it dying

so i went back in my mind
where i kept the fears that i called mine
dust was all i could find there
so i drank down my wine
and couldn't keep from crying

but thats the way the cycle goes
in rotted petals seeds will grow
i've been growing here for long enough
i know what i'm looking for
and i know i'll find it here inside
