Songs Mother

Written by

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, and 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 here and she wants to be growing
Here'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!
