Lyrics
what shall we grow in your garden my dear
if my seed comes to breed in your nursery?
a dolphin or a deva or a true devotee
that your love may never grow thirsty

for a soul is so real and so whole and so free
and a body is so frail
and so human are we
are we dreaming?
is this the earth dreaming too?
will we live till we die
wondering why
or will we learn to grow
day by day by day by day by day

with the fruit of yr labour asleep at yr breast
will you nurture them softly and quietly?
and when next thing
the offspring have flown from the nest
can you love them and let them go quietly?

for a soul is so real and so whole and so free
and a body is so frail
and so human are we
are we dreaming?
is this the earth dreaming too?
will we live till we die
wondering why
or will we learn to grow
day by day by day by day by day

and here comes the autumn when leaves turn to gold
and the waning moon silvers me lightly
in the afternoon sun its good fun to grow old
as you hold me and lie with me quietly
for yr love is so real and so whole and so free

and a body is so frail
and so human are we
are we dreaming?
is this the earth dreaming too?
will we live till we die
wondering why
or will we learn to grow
day by day by day by day by day

and when old father time rings the chimes of my years
and i see my life turning around me
when you lay me down in your garden my dear
will you kiss me and let me go lightly?

for a death is so real and so whole and so free
and a body is so frail
and so human are we
are we dreaming?
is this the earth dreaming too?
will we live till we die
wondering why
or will we learn to grow
day by day by day by day by day
