Planted in the winter (video)

I picked this song to record next because it's the one I took to the songwriting workshop last week and I thought it would be nice if those folks could hear how it sounds when I can, you know, sort of pronounce words or sing notes or whatever. My stage nerves are the worst.

Also it's a good February song for a cloudy day.



Verse: C Em / Am Dm / F C / Dm G (G7)
Refrain: C Dm F G C
Chorus: F C / F C / Dm Am Dm Am / Dm G / F C / Dm Am
Bridge: C Am / Em Am / Dm Em

Buried under layers of moss, three deep, four deep
beneath the snow, held warm by clay I’ll keep
my eyes awake but my heart’s asleep, asleep
with the crocuses slumbering

It will hide below frost so thick, so thick
from winter darkness that hits like stones and sticks
It’s playing dead but it’s still a wee bit wick
to the drum beat the blood must sing
And like anything that’s planted in the winter, it may grow in the spring.
Like anything safe underground
Like anything waiting for the rains to come down
Like anything planted in the winter
and longing for the warmth to bring
green from this world of brown.
Like Persephone with her heavy crown
ready to leave the solemn king
And like anything that’s planted in the winter it may grow in the spring.
Daffodils sit deep underground so dark, so dark
unrecognizable stones just like the heart
but when the sun returns they’ll rise like larks
smell of grass and the sound of wings
And like anything that’s planted in the winter, it may grow in the spring.
Chorus
Oh don’t dig up the ground here, don’t give it up for lost
The seeds are only sleeping and the frost is only frost
The garden is our secret, it’s a silent living thing
And like anything that’s planted in the winter, it may grow in the spring.
Chorus
And like anything that’s planted in the winter may it grow in the spring (2x)

Now have the ability to} get to this end level using a round movement or using an arc, want to|we have to} define its heart level. The values of the I and J are relative to the starting point|the start line|the place to begin}, or the end level of the earlier command. So, to get the middle level to the X5 and Y7, want to|we have to} make an offset of zero alongside the X axis, and offset of -5 alongside the Y axis. Unlike the G00 command which is used Bottle Warmers just for positioning, the G01 command is used when the machine is performing its main job.
