Before It Had a Name

I look at a photograph
There you are looking back
We were so much younger then
Younger than we'll be again
Suddenly from grace we fell
Who knows why, who can tell?
We became a cage
A container for rage

But wilderness was wildness before it became tame
There was a spark before there was flame
Love is the answering of its own longing
And it can always be reclaimed
Cause our love had a spirit before it had a name

Tribalism, nihilism, egotism, altruism
Different prisons, we become victims of our own -isms
I've walked the city streets
Many good people I meet
All these eyes look back at me
One country is what I see

Cause wilderness was wildness before it became tame
There was a spark before there was flame
Love is the answering of its own longing
And it can always be reclaimed
Cause America had a spirit before we had a name

Anger burns things down
We must till the ground
For a new seed to grow
United we stand tall
Divided we will fall
Just ask the kids, cause they still know

If you want a human solution,
Fight for human connection
If you want a human solution,
Fight for human connection
Fight for human connection
Fight for human connection

Cause humanness has a naturalness
Not all things need to be tame
There was a spark before there was flame
Love is the answering of its own longing
And it can always be reclaimed
Cause America had a spirit before it had a name
Our love had a spirit before it had a name
You and I had a spirit before we had a name
And the spirit can be reclaimed

Before It Had a Name
