Lyrics: 

Growth

(Verse)
Life is changing, changing fast
Moving forward and I'm stuck in place
We're still clinging on to the past
How do I keep up with this torrential pace?

I'm driving slow in the fast lane
And I hear them all honking at me
I can feel my hope begin to wane
But I'm still searching for something I can't see

(Chorus)
Searching for sunlight so I can burrow my roots
My leaves are reaching for the sky and I'm
Begging for a rainstorm to wash on by,
Why I'd settle for a little drizzle

I've got all the dirt I'd ever need
And yours truly is the seed
I'm planted and ready for growth
Sun and water, I need both

(Verse)
I'm slipping and falling on an icy rink
While the others skate on by
The ice will melt and I will sink
Unless I learn to fly

Sprout some wings and soar above
Like the sun and it's early rays
Call me Mr. Morning Dove
Gotta stop waiting on sunny days

(Chorus)
Searching for sunlight so I can burrow my roots
My leaves are reaching for the sky and I'm
Begging for a rainstorm to wash on by,
Why I'd settle for a little drizzle

I've got all the dirt I'd ever need
And yours truly is the seed
I'm planted and ready for growth
Sun and water, I need both

(Chorus)
Searching for sunlight so I can burrow my roots
My leaves are reaching for the sky and I'm
Begging for a rainstorm to wash on by,
Why I'd settle for a little drizzle

I've got all the dirt I'd ever need
And yours truly is the seed
I'm planted and ready for growth
Sun and water, I need both

(Bridge)
I'm going faster now faster than ever before
Opening every single new door and I
Can't stop this speed, won't stop this momentum
When we get there, I'll tell everyone who sent 'em

(Chorus)
Searching for sunlight so I can burrow my roots
My leaves are reaching for the sky and I'm
Begging for a rainstorm to wash on by,
Why I'd settle for a little drizzle

I've got all the dirt I'd ever need
And yours truly is the seed
I'm planted and ready for growth
Sun and water, I need both

(Chorus)
Searching for sunlight so I can burrow my roots
My leaves are reaching for the sky and I'm
Begging for a rainstorm to wash on by,
Why I'd settle for a little drizzle

I've got all the dirt I'd ever need
And yours truly is the seed
I'm planted and ready for growth
Sun and water, I need both

(Chorus)
Searching for sunlight so I can burrow my roots
My leaves are reaching for the sky and I'm
Begging for a rainstorm to wash on by,
Why I'd settle for a little drizzle

I've got all the dirt I'd ever need
And yours truly is the seed
I'm planted and ready for growth
Sun and water, I need both

Nice lyric; wonderful structure. I'm going to put a 'hold' on this lyric, so to speak, as one to add music to in the not-so-distant future, if that's OK with you?

Wonderful sentiment and great images with strong metaphors make this a wonderfully written lyric. I like it!

This is so super relatable as most of us feel at times that we are stuck or moving slow and everyone else is just floating to the finish line. There is no finish line other than death. Good reminder to keep at a pace that is good for us. Very good song.
