I came alive on the first warm day of spring. 
There was no-one there to greet me,
but I came to do my thing.
I opened up my arms and I said,
'I have arrived!'
And my body is in protest,
but my spirit is on fire.

I am born,
I am sad,
I am overcome,
with a restless love,
on an average day.

I wrestle to the ground,
anyone I meet, in play.
If you can guess my name,
then you will surely make me stay.
I say, 'I live in jest of death,
and that includes it all'
and that pain will be the partner,
I must welcome most of all.

Yeah I am born,
I am sad,
I am overcome,
with a restless love,
on an average day.
