Clementine, you're mine.
And I hold you in the palm of my hand.
Rain or shine, you give all the time.
I'm coming to understand.

The only truth I've found, the cycle is circling round and round.
Round and round again.
The only truth I've found, the cycle is circling round and round.
Round and round again.
And again.

Phone alarm, in the middle of war.
Brothers and sisters what are we standing for?
I can tell you the ending, before it begins.
Until peace is the answer, nobody wins.

The only truth I've found, the cycle is circling round and round. (Nobody wins)
Round and round again.
The only truth I've fund, the cycle is circling round and round.
Round and round again.
And again.

Naturally, you don't believe me.
You say, it's simply inconceivable and I can see.
I, yeah I believe that you'll come looking for me.
When you believe.

We gather here, spring to fall.
The time will come to leave this all.
Back to the ground where it began.
Little seeds from my hand.
You're falling from my hand (from my hand).

I believe.
The only truth I've fund, the cycle is circling round and round.
Round and round again.

Follow the sun.
Everyone one.
I believe.

The only truth I've fund, the cycle is circling round and round.
Round and round again.

    General CommentJust saw them play with Sara Bareilles and Rachael Yamagata in Toronto!! Such incredible stage presence!!! Loved every minute of their set. Although, as they were openers, it was way too short.
    I don't know what this song means exactly...but it is lovely.

    General CommentBeautiful song. I found this band through Sara Bareilles as well. Not sure what this song means except that generally life is just a cycle of war with no peace that never ends.

    General CommentI love this song. I'm not sure what its about, besides a tree (they talked about it at a concert, i kind of zoned out. Sorry Chask.) But they are amazing. And I befriended them, and then discovered Sara Bareillles! BOth amazing. =]I wish i could actually see them open for her... I was just at the soundcheck.
