I’m just a bee Find any flower, and I nest in any tree And I wait and see Don’t want to do something that might come back to haunt me Any apple, any tree I need somewhere to lay my hat, sleep peacefully But I decay, so steadily I need reassurance that I’m where I’m supposed to be Cause there are trees and there are flowers There’s a million ways for me To satisfy my needs And I can’t understand it no I never seem to see Chase the things I want Don’t wait for them to come to me Am I what you need? Do I define success by putting others’ minds at ease? I’m so afraid, I’m afraid to be I take any suggestion and I eat it forcefully All the options, everyday You say something different, but you say, “Sam it’s the only way” But any outcome, that I see Might make someone happy, but I’m not sure that someone’s me Cause there are trees and there are flowers There’s a million ways for me To satisfy my needs And I can’t understand it no I never seem to see Chase the things I want Don’t wait for them to come to me Oh don’t wait for them to come to me I’ll be the change I want to see I’ll stop complaining I’ll shut my mouth I got to figure out what being me is all about Cause there are trees and there are flowers There’s a million ways for me To satisfy my needs And I can’t understand it no I never seem to see Chase the things I want Don’t wait for them to come to me

The sun came out With each new day Never concerned Knew it would stay Now something’s changed A new cold breeze The sun is gone Is she asleep? Sunshine oh please stay Do not leave When the others do, stay Sunshine oh please stay Do not leave When the others do, stay She was bright and free At least it seemed Like all good things She had to leave This fire so bright Cannot be tamed Warm all those mornings Not as of late Sunshine oh please stay Do not leave When the others do, stay Sun, shine down on me Everyday When you have to leave I’ll be okay But in the end Some sun will rise But to be warm There is a price

Seems things are always turning Spinning all around And all that means I swear, I swear It’s hard to stay standing Learn to stay on your own two feet You have to crawl before you walk now I always end up crawling How to get up to speed? How to get up to speed? How to get up to speed When I always end up crawling? Things are always turning oh they’re Spinning all around And all that means for me is that I’m always falling down I’m always falling down Pick me up, up off the ground I’m always falling down I guess I never figured it out I swear, oh I I’ll never get there

Sugar sweet like cherry pomegranate Spit the seeds out in the grass When you were young and you were messy The others cared but that’s alright Share it all you show your flower A different world you live in your youth When others doubted you ignored them Can you do the same again? Cause you’ve got seed your fruit’s unpeeled And others cannot eat them You’ve got things that they’ve yet to hear Cause you have yet to sing them Still the same fruit, another year You give it all you can What was sweet and seemed so sincere Now is saccharine Fragrant flowers on the tree Blood red juice is deep inside Starts to dry up as heat rises Things you can’t see on the skin So when it’s harvest time And you’re still on the tree Selection isn’t everything There’s things they cannot see Cause you’ve got seed your fruit’s unpeeled And others cannot eat them You’ve got things that they’ve yet to hear Cause you have yet to sing them Or think them Or write them So just save them Til you can say them Or sing them Again

Surrounded by others, he waits by himself Feeding on failures that already fell While out in the forest but well within reach Different timbre, similar each At least one bigger issue A thousand greater needs At least one way that he could help But he has to grow himself He’s sure that it’s more of the same old game You work hard and diligent But only grow when it rains Forever and ever, ‘til one day it’s done Sleeping in shadows, secondhand sun And herein lies the issue In trying to grow strong and tall There’s just one shot at the sun If she ever chooses to shine at all Cause he has to stand when the wind blows And hold himself upright Has to carry on growing It’s shade or be shadowed, no less

The things that I read don’t mean nothing to me Nothing to me, nothing to me The things that I read don’t mean nothing to me Nothing to me, nothing to me Cause loyalty I learned from my family And music taught me how to speak True beauty I found in the wilderness Before she brought me down crying on my knees I studied the mistakes of my elders Still had to make all the same ones myself My TV taught me that there’s none you can trust But my friends taught me trust was enough And love I don’t know if I’ll ever be done I learn a little more every day Direction is pointless I can see it in the wind I travel but it blows me away Oh I spent all my years in a school Only to find out I’m just a clueless fool Learned to listen when I learned to stop talking Realized I felt more than i show For most of what I did to have happened at all Determination I just had to know And love I don’t know if I’ll ever be done I learn a little more about it every day Direction is pointless I can see it in the wind I travel but it blows me away It blows me away I travel but it blows me away (ooooh) The things that I read don’t mean nothing to me Nothing to me, nothing to me The things that I read don’t mean nothing to me Nothing at all

All the leaves from up above will all fall down For to continue they have to sink into the ground Yeah all fall down Some that fall will never see what’s underneath Only see the things that keep them in the tree So selfishly Everything that falls is covering us now Mushroom, dead leaf, repeat, fall and turn around Hey what’s that sound? Cause this is not the first forest Many came before this Take another look around before you fall See where you came from- one oak strong and growing tall Creates it all Leaves all different colors, but made all the same For the mistakes of the forest, all are to blame All burn the same So for the sake of those that came before Don’t just fall, but add to, embrace, and be sure To not destroy Cause this is not the first forest Many will come after this
