There was a time, my life was empty
I had it all, oh much more than I need
I wanted more, nothing could fill me
I found the door and I just had to leave
Runnin round in circles, leaves in the wind, starting again (I found)
Wisdom in pinks and purples, being right here and now.
I thought the problem was, there man that I was with
I had to leave him, or I just couldn’t live.
That didn’t fix it, still caught in my own mind.
Till that wise woman, taught me how to find.
Wisdom in pinks and purples, (no more) leaves in the wind, starting again
(I quit) Running around in circles, I’m going nowhere now.
Now it’s OK, facing each day, it might be sad or it might go my way
The wisdom of the women, the gifts that I’ve been given,
Have taught me all I need to know about this living.
