I don't know why, I don't know why
I don't know why it takes so long

I cut my hair, I grow it back
First the thought and then the act
To think a plant up towards the sun
It can't be done, it can't be done

I see you now, I saw you then
I know you more, and different
I can't contain it, still complain
Love's a weed, trust is rain

In a moment wings unfurl
A butterfly, a little girl
Star pieces fall to the ground
Streaks of light, just tonight

Sam and Libby, Lib and Sam
Made a little one of them
A baby's born a man to die
I don't know why, I don't know why

    General Commenti know there are different ways you can go about this song, but from my own interpretation i feel like it's the struggle the narrator has with patience and the unknown. sometimes you just got to let go and give things time and stop asking why.
