ravine lyrics – ace of base


have you heard, have you heard?
about this girl who was ripped up by her roots
have you heard, what she learned?
like humility – you win when you lose

i have learned, i have learned
the most horrifying nights have an end
i was hurt, i was lost
in the dark i found a way to a friend

i am standing here in my ravine
once again i see a piece of the sky
and my joy’ll never be denied
’cause i was meant to be here –
the only place on earth
where you are near, where you are near

was a flower, was so frail
and i let the trees grow wild around me
grew so high, hid the sky
shaded everything i needed to see

then one night, someone came
took a knife and ripped me up by my roots
tossed astray, far away
in the darkest night, i started to pray

i am standing…

why do you, why do you ask?
why i’m not blaming my god?
i’ll tell you, i’ll tell you what
he was the only one there

i am standing…
