The truth I knew when I was eight
My dad swam the length of Spirit Lake
It must have been a million miles
This I knew was true

My mother sang while hangin' clothes
Her notes weren't perfect heaven knows
But heaven opened anyway
And this I knew was true

[Chorus]
Leaves don't drop they just let go,
And make a place for seeds to grow
Every season brings a change,
A seed is what a tree contains,
To die and live is life's refrain

I left her with some groceries,
Said, "Check the oil and call me please."
She said "Hey, ma I'll be just fine."
This I knew was true

[Chorus]

I've traveled through my history,
From certainty to mystery
God speaks in rhyme in paradox
This I know is true

And finally when life is through,
I'm what I am not what I do
It comes down to you and your next breath,
And this I know is true

[Chorus]
