Lyrics

Plant me a tree whose roots will go down
To join the memories of ones no longer here
For the leaves will fall softly and carry me home

Give me the soil whose vigil will keep
And water deep to rest upon and branches at my feet
For the leaves will fall softly and carry me home

Uprooted, stormed and tossed
All that’s found in all the loss

Keep me a story of one who loved the earth
The tangled web of seasons, the rising of new birth

For the leaves will fall softly and carry me home

Plant me a tree whose roots will go down
To join the memories of ones no longer here
For the leaves will fall softly and carry me home
And carry me home
And carry me home
Plant me a tree that carries me home
