lyrics

Flat Against the Ground

I go out to the field to cry, I face the wind and open my arms wide
I ask the crickets what they know, I ask the butterflies where to go

My tears fall deep into the grass, I cannot take them back
Now they belong to the dirt, to the flowers, and to the ferns

I lay me flat against the ground, this is where I lay my burdens down
I lay me flat against the ground, this is where I lay my burdens down
Down, down, down, down, down

I’m only human, yes, I know, I cannot fix a world of woes
Sometimes it is all too much, I long for something true to touch

I lay me flat against the ground, this is where I lay my burdens down
I lay me flat against the ground, this is where I lay my burdens down
Down, down, down, down, down

I go out to the field to say goodbye, I face the wind and open my arms wide
I ask the crickets to sing their song, I tell the butterflies to be strong
Butterflies be strong
