This is the Song Dandelions by FIF.
"In a field of yellow flowers, underneath the sun,
bluest eyes that spark with lightning, boy with shoes undone.
He is young, so full of hope,
reveling in tiny dreams, filling up, his arms with flowers, right for giving any queen.
Running to her beaming bright, while cradling his prize.
A flickering of yellow light, within his mother*s eyes.
She holds them to her heart, keeping them where they*ll be safe,
clasped within her very marrow, dandelions in a vase.
She sees love, where anyone else would see weeds.
all hope is found.
Here is everything he needs.
Fathomless your endless mercy, weight I could not lift.
Where do I fit in this puzzle, what good are these gifts?
Not a martyr, or a saint, scarcely can I struggle through.
All that I have ever wanted, was to give my best to you.
Lord, search my heart, create in me something clean.
Dandelions you see flowers in these weeds.
Gently lifting hands to heaven, softened by the sweetest hush,
a Father sings over his children, loving them so very much.
More than words could warrant, deeper than the darkest blue,
more than sacrifice could merit, Lord, I give my heart to you."

this blogger thing is pretty cool actually, don't you think?
today it is really cold outside, not that anyone cares.
on tuesday i have to go to a spelling bee. i really am a pretty good speller
but i still hate it. i know i'll get out on the first word and i don't really care.

i started making a new website, first called "visions of faery gold"
then called "dandelions" but now I don't want it anymore.
partly because it was a sappy idea and partly because the host
kept giving me an error message when i tried to upload my picture.

i need a scanner.

today i downloaded a bunch of Five Iron Frenzy songs. i love FIF.
Reese rocks.
