Root Like a Rose Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

there's a green,green place
where you lift your face
to the sound of the waves and the wind
down by the shore
where my soul does endure
where the Mother Sea ends and begins

take me home
to the sand and the foam
where my dreams walk in the mist
i'll fall to the earth and root like a rose
in the salt land
that gave me my birth

though i wander afar
the same sea,the same stars
still shine to the tears in my eyes
they take me home to a land
that my soul understands
where the heart of the rose never dies

take me home
to the sand and the foam
where my dreams walk in the mist
i'll fall to the earth and root like a rose
in the salt land
that gave me my birth
