Lyrics of Apricot Stone

(Original)

Many, many years ago, When I was a little child, Mama told me you should know, Our world is cruel and wild, But to make your way through cold and heat Love is all that you need I believed her every word, More than anything I heard But I was too scared to lose my fun I began to cry a lot And she gave me apricots Kisses of the earth, fruits of the sun Apricot stone, Hidden in my hand Given back to me From the motherland Apricot stone, I will drop it down In the frozen ground I’ll just let it make its round Apricot stone, Hidden in my hand Given back to me From the motherland Apricot stone Now I see the northern stars Shining brightly in the storm And I’ve got an avatar Of my love to keep me warm Now I’m not afraid of violent winds They may blow They can’t win May the winter stay away From my harvest night and day May God bless and keep my cherished fruit Grow my tree up to the sky, Once I waved my home goodbye I just wanna go back to my roots Apricot stone, Hidden in my hand Given back to me From the motherland Apricot stone, I will drop it down In the frozen ground I’ll just let it make its round Apricot stone, Hidden in my hand (Hidden in my hand) Given back to me (Given, given back to me ) From the motherland Apricot stone Hidden in my hand Given back to me From the motherland Apricot stone
