Ace Of Base Ravine Lyrics

Have you heard, have you heard?

About this girl who was ripped up by her roots

Have you heard, what she learned?

Like humility – you win when you lose

I have learned, I have learned

The most horrifying nights have an end

I was hurt, I was lost

In the dark I found a way to a friend

I am standing here in my ravine

Once again I see a piece of the sky

And my joy’ll never be denied

‘Cause I was meant to be here –

The only place on earth

Where you are near, where you are near

Was a flower, was so frail

And I let the trees grow wild around me

Grew so high, hid the sky

Shaded everything I needed to see

Then one night, someone came

Took a knife and ripped me up by my roots

Tossed astray, far away

In the darkest night, I started to pray

I am standing…

Why do you, why do you ask?

Why I’m not blaming my God?

I’ll tell you, I’ll tell you what

He was the only one there

I am standing…
