"Find a Lilly (38)" - Song lyrics (translator):

Went out
amongst
the thorns and thistles
to find
a Lilly
to play
from its beauty
and smell
I -- find strength
so I walked
home
for I have found - Someone
to say
I love -- You.

Rough and rugged
is the way
the Sun
beats down
on We
catch some water
to quench the thirst
of My ... Lilly
at home
many - are hungry
had a thought
to bring food
from the field
but that too
was a - scarcity
so like a bird
She flies
My Lilly
flies away - from Me.

Look at I
a farmer
in a … barren field

I planted
last season
it didn’t rain
the winter - before
no support
the crops
they wither - away
nothing to hold
My ... Lilly
in a rocky
  clay ground
My Lilly
flies away -from Me ...
from the cycle of uncertainty
  the cycle of uncertainty

Now - I have lost
all pride an’ shame
as I have asked
friend an’ family
some strangers
to seek Lilly
for Me
with all the love
I have
My ‘bank’
lacks … the fertility
to attract
and bond
a Lilly’s - play
to dance
a term
to harvest
time
is of an essence
to bring forth
the bounty
of a … new harvest - so
like a bird
She flies
My Lilly
flies away - from Me.

How do I
live in - with - accept
much less
explain
this -- stress
how do I
live in - with - accept
much less
explain
this -- stress?

Rough and rugged
is the way
the Sun
beats down
on We
catch some water
to quench the thirst
of My ... Lilly
at home
many - are hungry
had a thought
to bring food
from the field
but that too
was a - scarcity
so like a bird
She flies
My Lilly
flies away - from Me
flies away - from Me
oh My Lilly
flies away - from Me
oh Lilly fly
fly Lilly fly - away
My Lilly fly
away - from Me
My Lilly oh
My Lilly fly
away - from Me
My Lilly fly
away - from Me.
