I never had a Cardinal feather until I told you
That I could breathe, then you walked with me
Straight to the mulberry
And then you painted my face with its purple
Reminded me of blood
That came straight from the forest
From which my soul was cut
I fell like the tallest timber
You were there to feel the truth

Although separated from my roots
I still grew close to you
Cause there's so many different types of green
Already growing over me
Steadily glowing, showing its teeth

I can't help but live intensely with every single breath
I'm so in love with life, I love with all my might
And the beauty and light radiating
From underneath your brow
I looked into your eyes
And I saw you sprout from the ground
Arms outstretched to the heavens
You were there to feel the truth

No weapon shall prosper while aiming at me

So why don't you just open your mouth and kiss me
I know you heard what I said boy I said
Why don't you just open your mouth and kiss me
