I’ve heard this song before, but I never actually listened to it as I did this evening.
The meaning is in the last part of the song:
Into a dancer you have grown
From a seed somebody else has thrown
Go on ahead and throw some seeds of your own
And somewhere between the time you arrive and the time you go
May lie a reason you were alive but you’ll never know
I’ll probably never actually know my meaning.
But I’m sure that my meaning is in the seeds I’m throwing.
I’m throwing them with every word I write in the vain hope that someone will read them.
I’m throwing them whenever someone come to me wanting advice or a chance to speak in confidence.
I am not full of myself enough to believe that I’m changing the world.
But I know that what I write is important to some people. ‘
What I say may have made a difference in someone’s life.
So I’ll casts my seeds.
Maybe one will sprout.
