To the Very Root

Versions: #1#2#3#4#5#6#7
I go on crossing rivers
roaming forests
loving the sun
Every day I go on pulling thorns
from the far depths of my inner heart
And at night I go on burning up dreams
to launder clean with the sacred smoke all of my memories
 
When I write your name
in the white sand, a backdrop of blue
When I look at the sky in the cruel form of a gray cloud
you come into view
In an afternoon I might climb a high hill
look at time gone by
you will know there's no way I have forgotten
 
I carry you within me, to the very root
and though I may blossom, still you will be here
Though I hide me behind the mountain
to come upon fields of sugar cane
There will be no chance, my ray of moonlight,
that you would be gone
 
I think that every instant that I survive while I am walking
And every second of incertitude
every moment of my not knowing
Are exactly the key to the weave in that fabric
which I go carrying under my skin
So as to protect you
You go on here within me...
 
I carry you within me, to the very root
and though I may blossom, still you will be here
Though I hide me behind the mountain
to come upon fields of sugar cane
There will be no chance, my ray of moonlight,
that you would be gone
 
Thanks!
