From the recording Blood & Water

Lyrics

For my children these words I bring
The key to life is just one thing
Some words are spoken but I prefer to sing
The reward is in the giving of everything

Desire burns with shock and awe
For each possession large and small
Tempting to mask the makers call
That has risen and filling since the fall

There is little road between us where so much can be lost
Where surrender to each other feels to great a cost

Life is painful
But stay strong
And for you I sing this song
It’s in love where we humans carry on

Darkness creeps in hearts that sway
Some board up their windows, others run away
Trim your wick to be ready, don’t delay
Your lamp will bridge the darkness to the day

There is little road between us where so much can be lost
Where surrender to each other feels to great a cost

Life is painful
But stay strong
And for you I sing this song
It’s in love where we humans carry on

There is little road between us where so much can be lost
I’ll be here when the freezing rain summons the frost

Life is painful
So stay strong
And for you I wrote this song
It’s in love where we humans carry on

We were made to be given
We are taught to take
One who dwells on the surface in time will break
Your beautify will steady the promise they shake
This world is drawn to a spirit awake
