Gwyrdd

from tunnel to cavern to cave,
see the dreams drip back and save
see the darkness be reborn,
see the light, forget the storm,

and turn and walk and free,
back to back and see,
see the clear light shining,
(see the truth is pining,)
see and don't ask why...

yggy hides in pando,
piggy lives as trees,
see the green is shining
(see the green is shining)
see and don't ask why...

I followed the light 'til I couldn't see the sky,
followed the earth 'til I couldn't pass on by,
followed the green 'til I couldn't hear the vine
(and I don't know why (and I don't know why))

in the woods is a church,
in the church is a tree,
in the tree is hope,
and in the hope is me
(and in the hope is me)

in the pews, I see faces,
strange, familiar faces,
warming colden places,
and I know the why
(and I don't know why)

I followed the light 'til I couldn't see the sky,
followed the earth 'til I couldn't pass on by,
followed the green 'til I couldn't hear the vine
(and I don't know why (and I don't know why))

you can take the lives I've led so long,
you can feel the loves I've held so long,
you can read the fear I've felt so long,
and it's trapped inside
(and I don't know why (and I don't know why))

you can hear the voice I've missed so long,
know the words, know the song,
feel reverberations continue on,
and let them fly
(and I don't know why (and I don't know why))

I followed the light 'til I couldn't see the sky,
followed the earth 'til I couldn't pass on by,
followed the green 'til I couldn't hear the vine

I followed the life 'til it led me home,
followed the hope 'til it led me home,
followed her 'til she led me home,
(and I don't know why (and I don't know why))

I can see the church and the wall and stone,
I can see the pain and wrought to the bone,
I can see the woods and the trees,
I can see the hope in me...

 and I don't know why...
(and I don't know why...)
