Even though the water reed

is swayed by passing currents

it spends its time reaching for  the sky

and even though down underneath

it grows up from the earth

it still shares part of the river's life

 

Whatever I can bring to you

is all I want to do

and regardless of what you think is true

there's always something new

for you

 

          A window on this moment

          a view of us is seen

          and as we look upon ourselves

          we only see what seems to be

          what seems to be

 

Even though our time has passed

as currents of air and water

each takes a share of the other's life with him

and even though time will outlast

our paths that still reach further

this will surely be a memory of where we've been

 

Whatever I can bring to you

is all I want to do

and regardless of what you think is true

there's always something new

for you

for you

yes

for you

  

 

Something New for You

 

Even though the butterfly

is swayed by any wind

it always travels airwaves night and day

and even though its weight is light

its purpose lies therein

to spread some seed of growth along the way

 

Whatever I can bring to you

is all I want to do

and regardless of what you think is true

there's always something new

for you
