lyrics

Bristlecone pine
You were awake when God heard the laugh of Abraham's wife
And in your youth you couldn't see the humor of it all

One of a kind
Eldest of all, you remember the times of death and of life
And in your book you wrote down the record of the fall
And deep in your heart you hoped you'd never fall
Oh, you hoped you’d never fall

Bristlecone pine
You breathed in the air when the men of the earth were making their wine
And in your pity you wished you could share the cup of pain
But deep in your heart you knew were already stained

Watching still, stand in silent witness
Won't you tell our children that we tried
I've seen proof that all is not lost
All is not lost
All is not lost

Once you were mine
Oh but instead of tending a garden I set out to find
Toil and torture upon this road alone
Oh but deep in my heart I still hoped it would lead me home

Watching still, stand in silent witness
Won't you tell our children that we tried
I've seen proof that all is not lost
All is not lost
All is not lost
