lyrics

Oh I’m a solitary tree
My branches clad with snow
Though the sun be distant
I can feel the glow

Oh friends and dear foes
I’m but singing for the poor
Now the falcon is soaring
spring is at the door

And it's a wonder what will spring from a tiny seed
from the palm of my hand to a mighty tree
And I wonder where my patience will carry me
From the depths of delusion to clarity?
To the place of dawn inside of me?

The heart belongs in the garden
But now it runs in wilderness
The wolves may scatter
But where will you find rest?

"In the land of the Beloved"
So Fatima was told
When she was lifted by her tears
To that heavenly abode

And it's a wonder what will spring from a tiny seed
From the palm of my hand to a mighty tree
And I wonder where this steed of pain will carry me
Is it death to the world that’s calling me?
is it the place of dawn inside of me?

So long ago
So far away
So long my friend
I can’t remain in this land

Carried by the wind
a leaf from afar
I have but one question
before I lose my heart

Am I the Jonah of lovers
Or the Boethius of faith
The coward on the run
Or the victim of my state

And as I close my eyes
There's a tree that grows
How did you find me?
Heaven only knows

And it's a wonder what will spring from a tiny seed
from the palm of my hand to a mighty tree
And I wonder where my certitude will carry me
From the veils of self to unity
To the place of dawn inside of me?
