Envy Green in Black & White

 

Envy green grow in ivy vines that hold me
Up they go
Past the collar bones and freckles on my nose
Higher higher til the words I tell myself are covered
Envy Green

The trees with their branches reach for something higher
The tips of my fingers always think there’s something better
Something more
Something worth longing for

The stars mark the sky and separate the seasons
Day brings a greater light to set apart the mornings from the nights
Back and forth they fight

IMG_7915

 Caught up in the wonder
Of what they being better
When my deepest darkest blue and the gold that paints your sky collide
The garden comes to life

Envy green grow in ivy vines that hold me
Up they go
Past the collar bones and freckles on my nose
Higher higher til the words I tell myself are covered
Envy Green

The secret inside of me is sick of silence
It’s calling from hollow for a greater since of purpose
There’s more
More we’re intended for

Caught up in the wonder
Of what they being better
When my deepest darkest blue and the gold that paints your sky collide
The garden comes to life

Envy green grow in ivy vines that hold me
Up they go
Past the collar bones and freckles on my nose
Higher higher til the words I tell myself are covered
Envy Green

What if we could take a taste of the maybe
Beyond what’s been known and been named

Bitter sweet we’re blooming forth from the envy
There’s freedom in the wisdom

But from the bite Eve lost Her Eden

Caught up in the wonder
We all wear this scarlet letter
It is written in our face
And the fault is when our stars collide
The garden will grow wild

Envy green grow in ivy vines that hold me
Up they go
Past the collar bones and freckles on my nose
Higher higher til the words I tell myself are covered

Envy Green

The trees with their branches reach for something higher
The tips of my fingers always think there’s something better
