My God, what an epic of a song! But a great one. I don't know what to
call all the different sections of the song. SO if you don't know
which part of the song I'm talking about, I've got the lyrics included.
Enjoy!

"In a room you can build a home,
plant the seed, and life begins to grow.
When it's outgrown life inside,
How will it live, and will it survive?
On it's own outside?"
