Lyrics

At the foot of a mountain, in a bamboo cafe
Sat an old Asian lady with eyes full of grace
I felt myself drawn to her calm, quiet way
And as her story started to flow
I was carried away

She told of a night when soldiers appeared
And chained her in darkness for seven long years
There's a wall in her country a thousand miles long
And they wrapped it around her
For thinking and speaking all wrong

Stand like mountain, move like water
Earth and heaven have this to offer
Strength will flow from life with honor
Stand like mountain, move like water

She knew in her heart she'd committed no crime
And a story to tell is what kept her alive
In a cell with no windows she nurtured the seed
That &one day the light would shine in
And people would see

I thought how her life was so different from mine
And the insight that came has remained in my mind
Here is a woman who knows who she is
Through good times and bad she's the same
The way that she lives

Stand like mountain, move like water
Earth and heaven have this to offer
Strength will flow from life with honor
Stand like mountain, move like water

At the foot of a mountain in a bamboo cafe
We bowed to each other and I made my way
And I carry with me like the seeds on the wind
Her spirit and her story to tell, and so it begins

Stand like mountain, move like water
Stand like mountain, move like water
