  1. Dig Down Deep

From the album The Juggler

Lyrics

You go first
No, you go first this time
I’m all ears
Tell me what’s on your mind
Let’s try to yard out the layers of your life
Toss out the rocks
Cut back the vines

We’ll take the time it takes
We’ll get out all the rakes
We’ll pull up every weed

We’ll dig down deep
Turning what’s beneath
We’ll dig down deep
Into that fertile ground

Some weeds have hidden roots
The ones way down below
Let’s clear them out
They’ve all got to go
Let’s make some space
For new seeds to sow
Spread them out
Let them grow

We’ll take the time it takes
We’ll get out all the rakes
We’ll pull up every weed

We’ll dig down deep
Turning what’s beneath
We’ll dig down deep
Into that fertile ground

Old friends
We never mind the dirt under our fingernails
We do all we can do
To help each other bloom
Again and again and again


The shovel’s in my hand
I’ve got no other plans

So let’s dig down deep
Turning what’s beneath
Let’s dig down
into that fertile ground
