Flower Power

from by Charity and the JAMband



A song about the magical miracle that is a flower...of course as a metaphor for the magical miracles we are as well! If we understood our true nature as clearly as a flower does its true nature, all would be well in the world. “Our own life has to be our message.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh


you start out as a little seed
holdin’ everything you need inside you
underneath the dark cold ground
waitin’ for a certain season
when it’s time you will know how
to make your roots and dig ‘em deep
and deeper down
suddenly one day you’ll find
you’re ready to send your stem into the sky
(little green sprout pokin’ through
deep dark earth do what you do)

you got flower power
it’s your finest hour
sun is gonna shine
rain is gonna shower
you’re gonna bloom, baby, bloom
you got flower power

you keep on stretchin’ all the ways
and one fine dawn you open up your little bud
you spread your petals reaching wide
breathing in the air and light and sunrise
you stand and wave and sway and fly
your beauty makes the trees and bees and birdies smile
you dance and sing a flower tune
with your new friends the earth sun air
and morning dew
(little flower bloomin’ bright
share your joy share your delight)


flower hears the truth
flower knows just what to do
flower power
flower hears its soul
flower knows just how to grow
flower lets go
flower heeds the message
of its nature of its essence
flower surrenders
flower has a deep and loving faith
in what it is becoming
you are the flower!

when the nighttime settles down
you tuck yourself right in and rest your petals
and while the starry meadow turns
you pause now
breathing in the darkness
this is now your magic time
you dream a flower dream in sleepy colors
so you can wake up every day
and share yourself
and do what you do your own way
(little seed you’re a flower now
gonna make a new seed
gonna circle ‘round)


“You are here to enable
the divine purpose
of the universe
to unfold.
That is how
important you are!”
~ Eckhart Tolle

“Our own life has to be our message.”
~ Thich Nhat Hanh
