Two Hands Hold the Earth

Words and music by Sarah Pirtle

©1984 Sarah Pirtle


My head is in the sky, sky, sky.

My feet are on the ground, ground, ground.

And what about my blood?

It’s from the sea.

And what about my bones?

Like the mountains be.

And my hands, oh, my hands,

I believe with my hands

I could hold this land.

My two hands hold the earth.

My two hands hold the earth.
