Take Its Own Time - Karine Polwart

You ceased to mow the lawn ten years ago
You just wanted to see how your garden would grow
You abandoned the pruning shears and welcomed each weed
You permitted the soil to select its own seed

But it would be unfair to assume you don't care
For you pay great attention to all that goes there
But you simply abstain from a plan or design
You just let it all hang out and take its own time
You just let it all hang out and take its own time

And you follow a thread in a book that you've read
Or in something that someone you heard somewhere said
You say, "It's all connected, it's all intertwined
If you let it all hang out and take its own time
If you let it all hang out and take its own time"

Well, you don't move too fast, you make it all last
You encounter each moment before it is past
And you say, "Walking slow in this world is no crime"
You just let it all hang out and take its own time...
