play O Mother

from CHANCES


O mother carry me home
O mother wrap me in lilies and carry me home
O mother I have come
to wonder where I'm from, where I'm from

see me kneeling in the pines
see me weaving blackberry vines, blackberry vines
into giant raven wings
I will fly and know these things, I'll know these things

I need to love someone
I need to shine like the sun, shine like the sun
O mother I have come
to wonder where I'm from, where am I from
