A woman in a straw hat
Went into a store
She walked up to the counter
And said she needed more
He didn’t understand her
He pulled his curtain down
And said, “This is what happens
When Spirit touches Ground.”
She left in such a hurry she didn’t take her hat
A boy said, “Don’t you worry, cause you’ll have no need for that.”
The sun went in a cloud
It covered up the town
And said, “This is what happens
When Spirit touches Ground.”
When it touches ground, ground
Well the truth is found
When the lights come on
When it touches ground, ground
Well the truth is found
When spirit touches ground
She pressed her lips together
To keep the words inside
She saw a thousand faces
And their thoughts were amplified
A mother’s boy was smiling
Painted like a clown
He said, “This is what happens
When Spirit touches ground.”
When it touches ground, ground
When the truth is found
And the lights come on
When it touches ground, ground
Well the truth is found
When spirit touches ground
She got back to the city
Looked in an old dog’s eyes
They were gray from seeing
But he was still inside
Said, “I know what you’re thinking,
Your friends might let you down
Sometimes this is what happens
When you get turned around
But you don’t want to leave us now
She got home it was evening
The telephone was shot
The television broken and the clocks had all just stopped
In the silence she heard singing
The whole world said it now
They said, “This is what happens
When Spirit touches ground”
(CHORUS)
