The soil's jet black thanks to last year.
We're gunna grow up tall. We can't stay here.
You'll break on through the leaves of grass that winter has packed.
Around and around we spun, we span.
It's time for us all to go back again.
We've been waiting.
What do I know? That I just don't know.
What happens when we wilt?
We have until the summer's fall to find out.
Right now it's time to grow and show color.
No matter what they think. You know my skin's grown thick.
You know in my heart I hold a love that could serve them well.
It's a love that's served us well all this time.
There's no other way to live.
Just ebbs and flows of suns and snows in our time.
There's no telling what summer holds.
Get ready for what suns and storms.
Dig your toes in the earth below.
