Final lyrics

Verse 1

It's hard to reach out for the stars
From the inside of my cell.
Trapped in my head, drifted so far
From the story my heart wants to tell.
It's a story of kinship, a story of roots
And a glorious family tree.
It's a story of passion, wings in the sky,
possibilities yearning to be!

Chorus

I'm a seed - hidden deep and reaching for the sun.
I'm a seed - invisibly my journey has begun.
I'm a seed - I will find a way across the night.
I'm a seed - another world is growing toward the light.

Verse 2

I must join my tribe, and join hands around the fire.
I must find the ones who naturally call me higher.
We must dance as one, and open our eyes and move together.
We are kindred and will be forever.
A dance of compassion, a dance to inspire,
To climb up toward the world we desire!

Verse 3

But each footprint we leave on the Earth
Is a wound we don't know how to heal.
We try to step lightly, but cannot be sure
That our world will survive this ordeal.
So it's time to rejoin the great pattern
And learn wisdom as old as the sun.
Then our cities and farms will be friends to the forests and seas
And we'll flourish together as one!

Chorus

I'm a seed - hidden deep and reaching for the sun.
I'm a seed - invisibly my journey has begun.
I'm a seed - I will find a way across the night.
I'm a seed - another world is growing toward the light.
I must join my tribe.

Verse 4

Seeds that float on darkness,
Seeds blossoming in stone.
Earth will send her children
To grow themselves new homes.
And when we meet the others,
Seeds drifting from afar,
We'll join them in their mission
To take root amongst the stars!

Chorus

I'm a seed - hidden deep and reaching for the sun.
I'm a seed - invisibly my journey has begun.
I'm a seed - I will find a way across the night.
I'm a seed - another world is growing toward the light.


Ben's draft lyrics

Verse 1

It's so hard to reach out for the stars
When I live in a gray padded cell.
Trapped in my head, I have drifted so far
From the story my heart wants to tell.
It's a story of kinship and roots, joining me to all life
In a glorious family tree.
It's a story of vision and wings and the wide-open sky,
possibilities yearning to be!

Chorus

I'm a seed - hidden deep yet reaching for the sun.
I'm a seed - invisibly my journey has begun.
I'm a seed - I will find a way across the night.
I'm a seed - another world is growing toward the light.

Verse 2

I must join the tribe that will make these dreams real,
But I never learned how to belong.
And how can I find those who share my ideals
When the world says ideals are all wrong?
I'll just have to invent a new dance that will move all my kin
To step out and join hands 'round the fire.
It's a dance of compassion and courage to help us begin
To climb up toward the world we desire!

Chorus

We're a seed - hidden deep yet reaching for the sun.
We're a seed - invisibly our journey has begun.
We're a seed - we will find a way across the night.
We're a seed - another world is growing into sight.

Verse 3

But each footprint we leave on the Earth
Is a wound we don't know how to heal.
We try to step lightly, but cannot be sure
That our world will survive this ordeal.
So it's time to rejoin the great pattern that all creatures weave
And learn wisdom as old as the sun.
Then our cities and farms will be friends to the forests and seas
And we'll flourish together as one!

Chorus

We're a seed - hidden deep yet reaching for the sun.
We're a seed - invisibly our journey has begun.
We're a seed - we will find a way across the night.
We're a seed - another world is ready to take flight!

Verse 4

Seeds that float on darkness,
Seeds blossoming in stone.
Earth will send her children
To grow themselves new homes.
And when we meet the others,
Seeds drifting from afar,
We'll join them in their mission
To take root amongst the stars!

Chorus

I'm a seed - hidden deep yet reaching for the sun.
I'm a seed - invisibly my journey has begun.
I'm a seed - I will find a way across the night.
I'm a seed - another world is growing toward the light.
