lyrics

The forest catches fire and the weakest tree is dying
The smoke is my eyes and it hurts when I start crying
I want to put it out, but they say to let it burn.
I want to let it live, but they say it’s now my turn.

It’s hard enough to watch it all go
It’s harder when you ask me to grow
They say you can’t have change without pain
But you never know

The field’s clearing out, and there’s nothing left but ashes.
And every seedling grows with another that it clashes.
As tight as we compete there’s a lesson to be told,
It’s beautiful to see when the new replace the old.

It’s hard enough to watch it all go
It’s harder when you ask me to grow
They say you can’t have change without pain
But you never know

Although I’m young
I’m ready to be sung
As steady as the sun
