the gladdest thing lyrics – deb talan

i will be the gladdest thing under the sun
i will touch a hundred flowers and not pick one
i will look at cliffs and clouds with quiet eyes
watch the wind blow down the gr*ss and the gr*ss rise

doesn’t each of us have a place we belong
could be a sidewalk crack or sad song
inside our searching is desire to etch a silent thought in stone
to make our tender heart known

i will be the gladdest thing under the sun
i will touch a hundred flowers and not pick one
i will look at cliffs and clouds with quiet eyes
watch the wind blow down the gr*ss and the gr*ss rise

and when the lights begin to show up from the town
i will mark which must be mine and then start down
everyone wants to be a hero or a savior of small things
i want to be champion of evening, forget not the beauty of the in-betweens

everyone of us had orphaned our bodies
born from dust of the stars
we can comfort each other in this place
i can look into your eyes and see my own face

i will be the gladdest thing under the sun
i will touch a hundred flowers and not pick none
i will look at cliffs and clouds with quiet eyes
watch the wind blow down the gr*ss and the gr*ss rise

and when the lights begin to show up from the town
i will mark what must be mine and then start down
