Mother Earth's Music


Strange Commotion

It’s hard to handle the feeling that we’ve never been born
but we’ll meet again ‘cause we’re part of the song
and we are part of everything but everything is wrong
fear seems like devotion and I’ve adored you for too long
It’s a strange commotion

Is there a man? Is there a man of good fortune?
cold mountain water and dust are our only portion
and every promise sounds like a big silly notion
but every embrace feels like a sweet extortion
It’s a strange commotion

So leave me here if you dare
and bloom like a burning rose
It’s a warm summer breeze out there
days are long and I know what no other knows
It’s a strange commotion
