Motherland

lyrics

What I see here is a motherland / A land I ask to still my restless hands / When I'm breathing I am empty and / when I'm full I'll beg to breathe again / I saw your mother, she was white as stone / I saw my mother and she was just the same / they'll meet in some place bigger than heaven above / where it is warmer, and a river flows, flows, and flows. / I saw my lover and he was dead as bone / I saw your lover and she was live as oak / they'll meet in some place bigger than heaven above / where it is warmer, oh how this vine grows, grows and grows / CH / I cut a person out of my whole life, a person cut me like I was a rope / I saw a morning glory clinging to a stone, as if it curled in need of hope / I'll meet my mother, meet my maker, too, meet my savior / meet myself in the water, see myself in water, / and lead myself through the water / CH
