this bitter earth, well, what fruit it bears
what good is love, that no one shares
and if my life is like the dust, that hides the glow of a rose
what good am I, heaven only knows

Lord, this bitter earth
yes, you can be so cold
today you're young, too soon, you are old

but while a voice within me cries
i'm sure someone will answer my call
and this bitter earth, may not be so bitter after all.

'this bitter earth/ on the nature of daylight'


  1. I had to hear the whole song after I heard it on So You Think You Can Dance! The lyrics are beautiful but the dancing really just hit the song home.
