The moon whistles as I work
On the vineyard, cutting wire till my hands glow red
The breeze rushes through each row with ease
Sky light fades, I'm alone in peace

Pulling poles and javelin throws
Marching up and down these rows make up most of my day
My only audience is bare olive trees
I hum along to every bird's melody

Red and green and orange and yellow
Rolling hills: it's quite the landscape for this uphill battle
The day's end climb is gradually steep
These autumn views are nothing short of a dream

Rain spits in spiral scatter
Dripping down onto the vines, a beat of pitter-patter
Amid the wild boar and buzzing bees
Listen to Mother Nature's symphony

Be still and know
Realize this world you see
So serene, so serene
Pan all degrees, this is God-breathed
The air sets in, I hear the stream
This place I've been...
So serene

Fish and wine is on the table
I am fine, I am strong, and I am stable
The only thing that disturbs my peace
Are these gun shots, they keep echoing

This is where I find myself now
Miles from home, planting beans
Eating Tuscany famed cuisine
Learning skills of a foreign scene
Whose pride is based on food and family

I can't believe this is happening
Opportunity will come
Once you're willing to seek

Where you find yourself now, take it in
(Make the most of, make the most of it)
You will flourish somehow, risk life and limb
For it won't be long now, so let's begin
Where you find your own crown, beauty lies within
Where you find yourself now, believe in it
