Maple Seed

I can see you’re sorry
Your sorrow fills the room
It isn’t me, it isn’t you
It’s what we stand on

I see that you’re sorry
Sorry’s not enough
Love is blind, life is tough
We move on

What I am, what I need
Is the tenderest of breezes
Maple seed make your way to the ground
Who we are and what will be
Will emerge within its season
Maple seed make your way to the ground

I can see you’re hurting
Don’t feel too good myself
Put on your shoes let’s go to the woods
And use our lungs
I see that you’re hurting
Your hurt is not my own
Let me be strong as you’ve been strong
Our time has come

What I am, what I need
Is the tenderest of breezes
Maple seed make your way to the ground
Who we are and what will be
Will emerge within its season
Maple seed make your way to the ground
