Lyrics

WILLIE SAYS
By Dana Lyons

Willie says
Here’s a story that you may not comprehend
But the parking lot will crack and bloom again
There’s a world beneath the pavement that will never end
The seeds are lying dormant, it will never end

And Willie says
If you listen you can hear the sound of birds
Hear their song above the chaos, hear their words
Listen to their love song that will never end
The seeds are lying dormant, it will never end
If you listen you may hear

And the old one sits with me above the city
While I watch the madness of the world below
Then she laughs and tells me that it’s temporary
Underneath the wild garden waits to grow

And Willie says
When you say you are afraid I understand
In a place where one can rarely smell the land
But the ocean breeze still blows here, that will never end
The seeds are lying dormant, it will never end

And Willie says
If you listen to this tree you’ll hear its song
It’s the music that my people pass along
It’s a dream that keeps returning that will never end
The seeds are lying dormant, it will never end
If you listen you may hear

And Willie says
Here’s a story that you may not comprehend
But the forest here will rise and bloom again
There’s a world beneath the pavement that will never end
The seeds are lying dormant, it will never end
Listen to their love song that will never end
It’s a dream that keeps returning that will never end
