LYRICS

Earth Waits for Me
Hey-a-ho, wa-hey-a ho

Nights bring me hindsight,
Days bring me doing,
Tomorrows bring me wishes,
Yesterdays bring me wisdom,
the moon vanity,
the sky longing,
the sun fear,
and the earth?
… it waits for me.

To a Child
Hey a hey, hey a ho, hey hey a ho

Wa hey a ho, wa hey a ho, hey a hey a ho

May the stars carry your sadness away,
May the flowers fill your heart with beauty,
May hope forever wipe away your tears,
above all, may silence make you strong.

Loo, loo a lay

Above all
may silence make you strong.

Once More
Hey-a-ho, wa-hey-a ho

Once more

Once more I like to hear water murmur of earth,
once more I like to touch a child to feel beyond today,
once more I like to taste tree sap
to remember the joys of Spring,
to see the color of happiness,
to know the death-man’s song will please me.

Once more

Then, O Earth, I shall be ready to return to you

Hey a ho, a hey a ho

Then, O Earth, I shall be ready to return to you
what little I have left
from all the years of taking from you.

Then shall I return
what little I have left
from all the years of taking from you.
