(Joe Stevens)
Originally recorded on Now Take Flight

Rain came falling from the sky
To soak the soil that once was left barren and dry
Her hands, they ache, she waits and sighs

Three long years, she worked the ground
A brutal season of life’s leaves had fallen down
It had been too long since the birds came around

All she wants are flowers, all she wants is life
Her days, she gave to her garden in faith
That one day the seed will rise

The breeze blows 'round
To the sun, the clouds give way

Rain came falling from her eyes
Through breath and toil the green sprouted, tender and wise
Her love brought the colors alive
