New Flowers

from Long Night Moon

My backyard is filling up with new flowers
From a garden I had years ago
Look how long it took to grow
My old friends had kids right out of high school
While I watched for the signs on the road
Look how long it takes to grow

I guess Ive been a lot of places
Trying to get all of my prizes
Now they dont mean so much anymore
What does my sun shine for
I got two reasons more

As a young girl I had just the one dream
And I followed it straight through the dark
Long how strong it makes your heart
Now my back yard is filling up with new flowers
I cant seem to get anything done
Hanging out all day with the littlest one

I guess Ive been a lot of places
Trying to get all of my prizes
Now they dont mean so much anymore
What does my sun shine for
I got two reasons more

Everybody used to tell us
Children change everything
But thats not exactly what is happening
Its not a curse or a cure
Gonna make a better world for
My two reasons more
Two kids I adore
