Seed on the wind

seasons came and seasons went
nothing ever changed
the moon would wax then wane again
no thought of asking what was meant

until the day that you came
like a seed on the wind

the distance from a nature’s beat
a half remembered sigh
still unheard this passed me by
empty soil beneath my feet

until the day that you came
like a seed on the wind

how could I know that I was alone
the hands on the clock running slow
how could I know that love dies alone
that life is a tree that can grow
and grow

all I have is earth and rain
I can offer you
you brought me joy, I watched your room
the sun an unforgiving flame

until the day that you came
like a seed on the wind

– cello counter-melody with vocalise backing vocal

how could I know that I was alone
the hands on the clock running slow
how could I know that love dies alone
that life is a tree that can grow
and grow

seasons came and seasons went
nothing ever changed
the moon would wax then wane again
no thought of asking what was meant

until the day that you came
like a seed on the wind

– guitar with vocalise backing vocal
