            Why do You Call?                 
(Christian Williamson 1997)

Why do you call me into the sky?
Why do I hear you sing?
Why do you tell me it’s time to fly?
I’m not yet ready to take wing.

Chorus:

And why, why, why do I fly?
Why do I soar to the sun?
I’ve places to be, and people to see,
And tasks I have not yet begun.
Why, why, why do I fly?
Why do I soar to the sun?
I cannot start to take my heart
Away from anyone.

Why do you call me into the fire?
Why does it crackle my name?
Why do you fill me with this desire,
To join you and dance in the flame?

Chorus:

Why do you call me into the water?
Why call me into the sea?
I’ve not yet finished raising my children,
There are lessons yet set for me.

Chorus:

Why do you call me into the earth,
Down where the roots all go?
I’m not yet ready for my next birth,
I’m not yet ready to go.

Chorus:
