You were under the dirt so deep that you didn't even know that you were there.
After many days and nights of rain you still did not appear.

Above the land is a sky of blues and grey, the greens are the fields in which we stand.
For all that is below and up above are all connected with love.
A ground so deep and a sky so high nothing is for sure but i and my.
