Artist With a Day Job
I just found Mary Win and am in awe of her talent. This song is a switch from most of the acoustic music you'll find her performing on YouTube, but it's evidence of her beautiful evolution as an artist.

If only you could tell me why the grasses grow and dry
Intended, Nature brings us life, light in the leaves and in my eyes
I am helpless as the ones who feed on nurseries of fallen trees
Where we grow cannot be changed, for once you're there the root remains
If only you could help me climb, the passes on the mountainside
Untended, Nature paints the landscape bright, winding the greens and phlox of white
I am helpless as the alpine seed, awaiting spring to tend to me
Where we grow cannot be changed, for where you root you shall remain
If only you could walk us by the earthen floor and biting flies
Splendid nature heals my mind, while glaciers turn the rivers wide
I am helpless as a hatching quail, where foxes come to take the frail
Where we grow cannot be changed, for what we are is why we came
