Lyrics

The springtime beckons new warmth from the sun
As the wind continues to blow
A seed gets tucked into a spot in the earth
Until the seeds encouraged to grow
As time goes by with solidified roots
He stretches his arms to the sky
And just as he's about as strong as he can be
That's when he's beckoned to die

They call it the flood
You know they call it the flood
They call it the flood
All but the memories washed away thats why they call it the flood

A young man fortified by determination
and the freedom to do as he please
A rung at a time he climbed up the ladder
til' he could see up over the trees
continued his ascent staying focused on his footing
so that he could adjust to the breeze
but the storm blew in with magnificent fury
and it leveled him like a disease

Thats why the call it the flood
thats why they call it the flood
They call it the flood
Even all the boats gon' sink to the bottom once they get caught in the flood

All boats gon' sink to the bottom
All boats gon' sink to the bottom
All boats gon' sink to the bottom today
Hold on cause' the levee's gonna break soon
Hold on don't let the river take you
Don't let this situation break you down

Because this is the day when you start your life over again
And for a very long time child this is gonna hurt like hell
But you're gonna make it through
yeah you're gonna make it through
said you're gonna see a new way
water recedes and the sun and the breeze are planning for a new day
Someday you'll find what you lost before
Someday you'll find what you lost before
Someday you'll find what you lost before
the storm
the storm
before
the storm

Knocked to the bottom I can still see the summit
one step at a time I'm a climb
as the days into weeks and the months into years
I'm beginning to see the design
We learn by the lessons of the loss and the scars
build another foundation in time
and once the last nail is driven in the column
well that's when I'm taking what's mine

Because of the flood
We got lost in the flood
Because of the flood
Nothing in this natural world's gonna break you
once you've been caught in the flood
All but the memories washed away
thats why the call it the flood
Even all the boats gon' sink to the bottom
once they get caught in the flood
Nothing in the natural worlds gonna break you
once you been caught in the flood
