Have you heard, have you heard?
About this girl who was ripped up by her roots
Have you heard, what she learned?
Like humility - you win when you loseI have learned, I have learned
The most horrifying nights have an end
I was hurt, I was lost
In the dark I found a way to a friendI am standing here in my ravine
Once again I see a piece of the sky
And my joy'll never be denied
'Cause I was meant to be here -
The only place on earth
Where you are near, where you are nearWas a flower, was so frail
And I let the trees grow wild around me
Grew so high, hid the sky
Shaded everything I needed to seeThen one night, someone came
Took a knife and ripped me up by my roots
Tossed astray, far away
In the darkest night, I started to prayI am standingWhy do you, why do you ask?
Why I'm not blaming my God?
I'll tell you, I'll tell you what
He was the only one thereI am standing
