You're searching your whole life
searching for gold
fine gold leaf makes a fine headdress
head and hands thick and cold.
searching for Paradise
believed in sweet words
though you know they’re all but lies
like people and acquaintances, you hoard.
No longer wearing your shame
your heart, like wildfire
yearning for souls to acclaim
take heed, My lady!
make your spirit free.
Let your energy blossom
let hopeful promises radiate
don't wait for the storm to pass
dance in the rain instead
let happiness and love transcend.
