Well my friends, well meaning; ask me why I keep on standing here: when my ship is so far out to sea.(when my dreams are so far blown away!) And I try to tell them why: I - say, there is something growing long, and strong, and deep inside of me: from the place I call myself out to the thing that some call Destiny. and as the bird is free to fly, I am free to flee/ stay; ah, but I am faithful to the one taught me to be faithful, to the tree/ day
