about

"Grow" is the result of a writing exercise of sorts, in which I decided to write a simple but real love song. I used the metaphor of plants and nature not just because flowers are so often associated with love, but also because the process of growth involves elements that are often considered to be less than ideal. Rain contributes to growth, even as it can batter the fragile exterior of a flower. Growing is rarely painless but is ultimately rewarding. I wanted to convey that relationships are strongest when we embrace and survive the storms rather than cower from the elements.
~Kim

Grow (lyrics)

You can be my shelter or my storm
You turn my bones to ice or keep me warm
Every cliché ever written down
Is twice as true and a lie when you’re around

You’ll be the sun to make me grow
I reach to the sky where the wind does blow
And when I wilt you’ll be the rain
To rinse my soul so I can try again

You want to believe in love but it burned you so
Shackled you to a self you didn’t want to know
And you scoff at me and my naiveté
But that’s what you get for being good to me

You’ll be the sun to make me grow
I reach to the sky where the wind does blow
And when I wilt you’ll be the rain
To rinse my soul so I can try again

You’ll be the air so I can breathe
And find the song that lives inside of me
And when I sing you’ll shed your pain
And feel your soul begin to love again

And we sing we shed our pain
And let our souls begin to love again
