about

this song is a love letter to me, to you- to us all. we are just as in harmony as the wildflowers. we needn't cling to identities or worry over what we'll become. we grow just as a bud inevitably blooms. how stressful it would be to think ourselves a bud as we unravel in our transformation. not knowing is a part of knowing, trusting is part of growing, just as the seed navigates through darkness. the wildflowers open and close for the sun and we open and close for love, responding and reacting to one another as one body admist a beautiful dance.

we woke up at 3a.m. to film this video on arapahoe glacier trail in colorado. i'm blessed to have grown up here. whenever i feel lost, i escape to the woods where all is quiet. nothing is asked of you. there is madness all around. everything is competing for life, resource, food, territory, a mate. there is constant death and constant rebirth. there is violence. but nothing feels out of place, it is all perfectly so. and it reminds me that i am a perfect part of said perfect chaos.

lyrics

i'm taught to love myself for my body and my mind
and him, for the things he does to me - for me
but my body grows older and my mind, it gets slower
so what does he love me for?

little girl in a bed of wildflowers
grows whether she knows about it,
opens and closes for the one
who opens and closes to her love.
she doesn't know herself or where she'll go,
doesn't understand it's inevitable
(the rose opens and closes for the sun)
she opens and closes for the one who sees her soul

he's taught to love himself for his mind and what he owns,
for how he treats the little girl - most times he gets it wrong
'cause he squeezes too tight and he's mean in a fight
but it's never been what i loved you for

little boy in a bed of wildflowers
grows whether he knows about it,
opens and closes for the one
who opens and closes to his love.
he doesn't know himself or where he'll go,
doesn't understand it's inevitable
(the rose opens and closes for the sun)
he opens and closes because i see his soul

and it's beautiful, pure and wild,
untamable, made of light and love,
see's right through the darkness in my life
to the animal who lives inside

little girl in a bed of wildflowers
grows whether she knows about it,
opens and closes for the one
who opens and closes to her love.
she doesn't know herself or where she'll go,
doesn't understand it's inevitable
(the rose opens and closes for the sun)
we open and close for love
