Album: Food In The Belly (2005)
  • So come sit down
    Will you talk with me now?
    Let me see through your eyes
    Where there is so much life

    We are biding our time
    For these myths to unwind
    These changes we will confront

    So please beware
    With every place that you had
    Look to your soul
    For these things that you know

    For the trees that we see
    Cannot forever breathe
    With the changes they will confront

    You know some people
    They just wont understand
    They just wont understand these things
    Thank you for your message
    But I don't understand
    No, I just wont understand these things

    This sacred land it has
    Seen many hands, it has
    Wealth and gold yet it is
    Fragile and old and all the

    Greedy souls just don't care to know
    Of the changes it will confront

    So speak out loud of the
    Things you are proud
    And if you love this coast
    Keep it clean as it evolves

    'Cause the way that it shines
    May just dwindle with time
    With the changes it will confront

    You know some people
    They just wont understand
    They just wont understand these things
    Thank you for your message

    But I don't understand
    No, I just wont understand these things
    You know some people
    They just wont understand

    They just wont understand these things
    Thank you for your message
    But I don't understand
    No, I just wont understand these things

    So hold nice and close
    The ones that get to your soul
    So that when it is cold
    You wont feel so alone

    'Cause the roads that you take
    May just crack and break
    With the changes you will confront

    With each gift that you share
    You may heal and repair
    With each choice that you make
    You may help someone's day

    Well I know you are strong
    May your journey be long
    Now I wish you the best of luck
    Well I know you are strong

    May your journey be long
    And now I wish you the best of luck Writer/s: XAVIER RUDD
