Lennie Gallant – Sequoia Lyrics

Touch me like a new born brook
Or  a leaf pressed in a book
Let  me offer you this nest
Lay your head down here to rest

From here we can see the moon
Where  the owl sleeps at noon
From  here we can feel the world
Far below watch it unfurl

Sequoia…  Sequoia

All we have to do is breathe
And in this red wood believe
Another ring another year
We  can build a love up here

Sequoia

And no fire can burn it down
And no wind can break it
Send the roots far in the ground
So no storm can shake it

Sequoia

Bitter cold and biting frost
Nothing’s worth what doesn’t cost
Let the snow fall on the limbs
Shake it off and grow again

Chorus

They may stare in wonder
They may even try to climb
But lightning and thunder
They can’t touch what’s yours and mine
Yours and mine….Sequoia

Chorus

All we have to do is breathe
And in this red wood believe
Another ring another year
We could save the world from here….Sequoia
