To America - Lyrics

I first saw you in the morning
Your eyes barely opened on your sun glittered shoulders
The green of your eyes
It was showing 200 years ago
As you were mourning

These things I hold

I watched your picture in a frame
Calling out to be free from the hallway
I felt the pull of your hand convincing us all to be
One of them
One of them

These things I hold

I am your daughter
If you'll have me
And just like my mother I put two feet down
I am your daughter
If you'll take me
And just like my father
I'm figuring it all out

I saw you wade in the evening
All of the stars above and city kids dreaming
We watched you as you were born
Our arms full of nothing and begging for more of it

These things I hold
These things I'm thankful

I am your daughter
If you'll have me
And just like my mother I put two feet down
I am your daughter
If you'll take me
And just like my father
I'm figuring it all out

I watched you turn into rivers
The mouths of the palms
Where saints became sinners
And all at once we were spinning
Billions of years ago ghost became living

These things I hold
These things I'm thankful

I am your daughter
If you'll have me
And just like my mother I put two feet down
I am your daughter
If you'll take me
And just like my father
I'm figuring it all out

There were flowers in your meadow
There were flowers in your hair
And sometimes the road less traveled
Oh I learned my lesson

I am your daughter
If you'll have me
And just like my mother I put two feet down
I am your daughter
If you'll take me
And just like my father
I'm figuring it all out

I am your daughter
If you'll have me
And just like my mother I put two feet down
I am your daughter
If you'll take me
And just like my father
I'm figuring it all out

I am your daughter
If you'll have me
And just like my mother I put two feet down
I am your daughter
If you'll take me
And just like my father
I'm figuring it all out
