lyrics

Bring me your tired and your troubled eyes
Show me the hidden faces twisted with frustration
Bring me your wretched heart
I’ll raise a cool hand and lay it on your brow

Give me everything tangled and torn
And I will make a song of it
Enough to make you weep
And from your tears will spring a field of blooming desert flowers

If it lasts a year of midnights
We will take the time to rest our weary souls
And if the fires turn the forests black
Then I will help you rake the ashes to grow a new garden

Give me everything tattered and bruised
And I will make a song of it
Enough to make you weep
And from your tears will spring a field of blooming desert flowers

Where life’s decayed we will plant our seeds
Where earth is bitter we will till until its sweet
Where no water runs we’ll dig
And this is how we will grow the world green again

Give me everybody tangled and torn
And I will sing a song with them
Enough to make the generations weep
And from the tears will spring a field of desert flowers
