Lyrics

The Giving Life


I planted a seed in the hot, black earth
In a four by four bed of dirt
I stood and I watched in the morning dew
As it sprouted and sparkled and grew

It’s the giving life that has a way
Of giving back to you every day

I planted a seed in a wild, young mind
I was unaware at the time
I stood and I watched as the young mind grew
And it sprouted and sparkled and flew

It’s the giving life that has a way
Of giving back to you every day

The sun is in the sky and I can find my way back home

I planted a seed in the winds of time
Just another day in my life
I watched as the sky went from clouds to blue
And my shadow returned good as new

It’s the giving life that has a way
Of giving back to you every day

The sun is in the sky and I have finally made it home

I planted a seed in the hot, black earth
In a four by four bed of dirt
I stood and I watched in the morning dew
As it sprouted and sparkled and grew

It’s the giving life that has a way
Of giving back to you every day
