The Seed of it All [song lyric]

Posted on Updated on

HERE ARE THE LYRICS for a song I wrote called “The Seed of it All”, which is on my upcoming CD (“The End of the Song”). This song is about the extraordinary process we call the passage of time — one of the greatest of all mysteries (for now). It seemed to me that it has a very fitting New Year message:

In the heart of every Summer
lies the child of the Fall;
and deep within each one of us:
The seed of it all.
Everything that’s yet to come
is now already here.
The seasons of the future
are secreted in the year.

We’re pregnant with potential
unfolding here in time —
palaces of promise
with a serenade sublime.
Everything we’ll be one day
is written in the now.
Each now becomes the future
but the miracle is how!

Refrain:
The present is the future in disguise;
the choices which we’ll make
are already in our eyes.
Liberated from the past
we will find ourselves at last;
every moment is a fond goodbye.

Always moving forward
like searching shooting stars;
never burning out because
we’re would-be avatars.
And from the cosmic dawn of time
we’re birthing who we’ll be;
reaching out our branches
like an ever-growing tree.

With embryonic visions
cascading years to come —
written on the wailing wall
our life a smoking gun.
Playing out our precious path
as troubadours of time;
we sing our way until we reach
perfection in our rhyme.

Refrain:
The present is the future in disguise;
The choices which we’ll make
are already in our eyes.
Liberated from the past
we will find ourselves at last;
every moment is a fond goodbye.

In the heart of every Summer
lies the child of the Fall
and deep within each one of us:
The seed of it all.
