  • Have you heard, have you heard,
    About this girl who was ripped up
    By her roots
    Have you heard, what she learned?

    Like humility, you win when you lose
    I have learned, I have learned
    The most horrifying nights have an end
    I was hurt, I was lost.

    In the dark I found a way to a friend
    I am standing here in my ravine.
    Once again I see a piece of the sky
    And my joy'll never be denied

    'Cause I was meant to be here,
    The only place on earth
    Where you are near, where you are near
    Was a flower, so frail,

    And I let the trees grow wild around me.
    Grew so high, hid the sky,
    Shaded everything I needed to see
    Then one night, someone came

    Took a knife an ripped me up by my roots
    Tossed astray, far away.
    In my darkest night I started to pray
    I am standing

    Why do you, why do you ask
    Why I'm not blaming my god?
    I'll tell you, I'll tell you what,
    He was the only one there

    I am standing Writer/s: JENNY BERGGREN
