about

Written for my mum on mother's day.

The original inspiration for this song is this poem by Hafiz:
“Even after all this time
The Sun never says to the Earth,
'You owe me.'
Look what happens with a love like that,
It lights the whole sky."

lyrics

The sun never says to the earth
"You owe me."
The earth never says to the sun
"Well, we tried."
Look what happens with a love like that
it lights up the whole sky

And the sun shines down to the sea
12 bar instrumental

The earth never says to the roots
"You owe me."
The roots never say to the earth
"Well, we're through."
Look what happens with a love like that
all the flowers that ever grew.

And the sun shines down through the trees.
12 bar instrumental

The mother never says to her child,
"We're finished."
The child never says to her mother,
"Well, we're done."
Look what happens with a love like that
All the children ever born.

And the sun shines down
over me
