I've heard people talk of love
And connections of the soul
Heard talk of desperation
And how the world is whole
Heard people talk of unity
Between our lungs and the air
How somewhere the grass begins
At the end of your long brown hair
But such an embodiment of life
I never thought to see
I'm dreaming of a woman in a redwood tree

I've heard people talk of passion
And the feelings that there are
When there isn't any difference
Between the near and the far
When nobody is a stranger
And everything's right here
Sometimes words just get in the way
And silence is so dear
I've seen you close your eyes
And just disappear and be
I'm dreaming of a woman in a redwood tree

I've heard people talk of sadness
To be in the lonesome few
When the destruction's all around
And it might as well be you
When they're cutting down your siblings
And everything's just falling
When you know time does not exist
But you can hear the urgent present calling
When all you can do is cry
And make a desperate plea
I'm dreaming of a woman in a redwood tree

And I've heard people talk of hope
And the power of emotion
Of the overwhelming beauty
Of a universe in motion
How a single flame can start a fire
How the fire can give birth
How the soil can be nurtured
And fill up all the earth
I've heard people talk of vision
And what it means to be free
I'm dreaming of a woman in a redwood tree
