lyrics

EMERALD FOREST
Janice Kephart

The peridot twinkle of a gentleman’s eyes
The emerald forest under the bluest of skies
Like the earth’s brown dirt that covers the finest of gems
I found you, flowered covered, of strongest stem
We flew through air with wings along the breeze
The emerald forest below, the world was ours to seize
Bring me around to the brightest light of day
With you I am not blinded
I see sun beams and don’t want to stray

You showed me emerald forests
You showed me the finest of gems
You gave me an angel’s chorus
Now I’m singing as if you’re my hymn

I call you emerald forest
I call you home
I call you emerald forest
With you I roam Repeat

The topaz twilight in a young child’s hand
The emerald forest where the thickest of trees stand
Roots dig deep, covering the finest of gems
I found you, flowered covered, of strongest stem
We flew through air with wings along the breeze
The emerald forest below, the world was ours to seize
Bring me around to the brightest light of day
With you I am not blinded
I see sun beams and don’t want to stray

You showed me emerald forests
You showed me the finest of gems
You gave me an angel’s chorus
Now I¢m singing as if you are my hymn

I call you emerald forest
I call you home
I call you emerald forest
With you I roam Repeat

I see my soul in the lake where the moon shines bright
The emerald forest is made for crystal clear sight
Glistening among branches are emeralds, the finest of gems
Amongst them I found you, flowered covered, of strongest stem
We flew through air with wings along the breeze
The emerald forest below, the world was ours to seize
Bring me around to the brightest light of day
With you I am not blinded
I see sun beams and don’t want to stray

You showed me emerald forests
You showed me the finest of gems
You gave me an angel’s chorus
Now I’m singing as if you are my hymn

I call you emerald forest
I call you home
I call you emerald forest
With you I roam
