Lyrics
Clearing webs from the hovel

A blistered hand on the handle of a shovel

I've been digging too deep, I always do

I see my fate on the surface

I look a lot like Narcissus

A dark abyss of an emptiness

Standing on the edge of a drowning blue



I look behind my ears for the green

And even my sweat smells clean

Glare off the white hurts my eyes

I gotta get out of bed and get a hammer and a nail

Learn how to use my hands, not just my head

I think myself into jail

Now I know a refuge never grows

From a chin in a hand in a thoughtful pose

Gotta tend the earth if you want a rose



Had a lot of good intentions

Sit around for fifty years and then collect a pension

Started seeing the road to hell and just where it starts

But my life is more than a vision

The sweetest part is acting after making a decision

I started seeing the whole as a sum of its parts



And I, I look behind my ears for the green

And even my sweat smells clean

Glare off the white hurts my eyes

I gotta get out of bed and get a hammer and a nail

Learn how to use my hands, not just my head

I think myself into jail

Now I know a refuge never grows

From a chin in a hand in a thoughtful pose

Gotta tend the earth if you want a rose



My life is part of the global life

I'd found myself becoming more immobile

When I'd think a little girl in the world can't do anything

A distant nation my community

A street person my responsibility

If I have a care in the world I have a gift to bring



I look behind my ears for the green

And even my sweat smells clean

Glare off the white hurts my eyes

I gotta get out of bed and get a hammer and a nail

Learn how to use my hands, not just my head

I think myself into jail

Now I know a refuge never grows

From a chin in a hand in a thoughtful pose

Gotta tend the earth if you want a rose

Oh my gosh, this is SO lovely, I could cry! It's so full of warmth and joy and determination and everything I love about this film! I love everything, and I'm enjoying it on so many levels - like, there's a level that's "this feels timely and encouraging" and also a level that's just "JUDI DENCH'S FACE".

Also perfect song choice is perfect!

Thank you so much!:DDDDDDDDD

I'm so charmed by this; it's so warm and uplifting, and even without being familiar with the source the song feels like a gorgeously perfect match. It also neatly confirms my long-time sense that this is a movie I should see, so thank you for that!

Aw, I love the song choice, even though, like the commenter above, I have not seen the movie. Particularly like what you did with the second verse ("the road to hell", ha) and the "global life" line.
