Song Lyric

Bloom Where You're Planted

Words and Music by Tom Acousti

I’ve heard it said
When I was young he held me well
And I can’t pretend to remember him myself
But in the story Grandma tells
When other men were angry
And withered in the sand
My Daddy never raved and never ranted
He just bloomed where he was planted

The story grows
How my Mom became his bride
She loved him most like the ocean where I
First became a twinkle in their eyes
When lovers were losing
Their diamonds and hearts
They held the cards they’d been handed
And they bloomed where they were planted
They bloomed where they were planted

Right now I’m all wrapped up
In one small patch of earth and sky
And it’s not the one I hoped for
But the sun and the soil can teach me why
If I don’t take them for granted
And I bloom where I’ve been planted

This thing he said
So long ago that I have just now heard
Tonight by this bed I say a prayer
So that the world may hear his words
And my father’s wish will be granted
My Father’s wish will be granted
When we bloom where we’ve been planted
When we bloom where we’ve been planted
