lyrics

Forsythia, how can you be so brilliant
to make a color like that
so yellow against the winter sky?
what can we do
that could possibly compare to that
turning water, light and air
into food, into a flower

oh this beautiful world,
why so little love to give
oh this beautiful world,
why so little love to give

red winged blackbird, you sing so eloquently
I can hear spring awakening inside your song
chickadee, you may be a bit like me
clinging tenaciously
and poised, ready to strike

oh this beautiful world,
why so little love to give
oh this beautiful world,
why so little love to give

Forsythia, how can you be so brilliant
to make a color like that
so yellow against the winter sky?
