i won't cry aloud when the shades are drawn before me. and i won't pray aloud for the surest way to save me.
just as long as while i'm here i watch the curtains rise and i appear
so now i'm counting the ways that i can shake that fear

chorus: you could say i've wasted time trying to find a perfect rose
i came close but her thorns would show
so all by myself i found a little seed. and it's all i need.

i've been knocking them down since the time they broke the ground.
and i've been shying away from myself, up til' now. cuz now i see a perfect seed growing strong as she can be
and when she rises she'll be all that i could find in me.

chorus:

bridge: as a child, as i recall i burned alive to paint the room not red or blue but shades of mine.
but the fire went out in a wave of doubt but i can learn to make a fire burn and burn again. now i know.

all by myself i found a little seed and it's all i need.
