Settle Down Dear

Published June 2, 2020 by tindertender

now settle down my dear
won’t you take while to rest
with your hand on my hand
your head on my chest
and i’ll tell to you a tale
of a time we used to know
of an old woman in a cave
below the orchard grove

her fingers they were lily white
and her eyes were ocean blue
she was the first one of her kind
the world it seemed so new
one clue

you will rise,
like a flame rise,
live again you will rise,
like a flame rise,
live again

if you’re searching for the answer
to the riddle here on earth
the riddle’s gone unanswered
since the moment of its birth
searching for the answer
so many would pursue
in favor of their honor
she provided just one clue

rise up from the ashes
decide which way to go
either up, down or sideways
by then you’ll need to know

you will rise,
like a flame rise,
live again
you will rise,
like a flame rise,
live again
