LIGHTLY TREAD by Billy Jonas

[note: “Hoda’ah” is Hebrew for “news flash”
           “Hodayah” is Hebrew for “give thanks!”]

    CHORUS: Lightly tread; spirit spread; make your bed; armor shed
    All are fed; hear whats said; clear your head

When u were a child, running in the woods
Trees climbed for miles, wind said u could
Now gravity’s in style, and you wish you would
Recall all you’ve understood

    (CHORUS)

When u were a tree, you let your spirit fly
Offering your leaves, like children to the sky
There’s no need to grieve, if you’ve forgotten why  
Reach out as you cry  

    (CHORUS)

Hoda’ah: HODAYAH! Hoda’ah: HODAYAH!
Hoda’ah: HODAYAH! Hoda’ah: HODAYAH!

Can u feel your roots, nurturing the seed
Can u feel the shoots, rise for all to see
Slowly bearing fruit, branches and it leaves
Reach out as you breathe

    (CHORUS)

Hoda’ah: HODAYAH! Hoda’ah: HODAYAH!
Hoda’ah: HODAYAH! Hoda’ah: HODAYAH!

Lightly tread: “moving on the earth...”
Spirit spread: “the reason for your birth...”
Make your bed: “first things first...”
Armor shed: “even if it hurts...”
All are fed: “show them what you’re worth...”
Hear whats said: “the trees, the birds...”
Clear your head: “it’s a temple, a church....”
