The Short Walk

we need love, love, love, love, love
on our short walk through this life

please be kind, kind, kind, kind, kind
on your short walk through this life

offer gentleness and grace
on your short walk through this life

‘cause anyone could be in pain
on their short walk through this life

and that pain can make us weary
and the hurt can make us weak
and our grief can make us fall fall fall
on our short walk through this life

but there’s a fire we all carry
and it lifts us when we break
we must offer up our fire
on on our short walk through this life

it’s an offering of love
on the short walk through this life

we need love, love, love, love, love
on our short walk through this life

The Rapture

you should know by now
this shit drives me crazy
sinner or saint, it’s all the same to me
i tried to tell you once or twice
in no uncertain terms
long as i live, i intend to breathe

show me what your good book is for
cause i don’t wanna fight anymore
if it were today,
would i see what you’d betray me for
all the little monsters in your head
could just be the lies you’ve been fed
can it really be
you can’t feel me here beside you

look up from the page
and try to hear me say that it’s alright
i’d swallow my rage
if you would hear me say that it’s alright
we’re more than the cage
you put us in, but then again
it doesn’t matter friend, we’ll be alright

i realize your life thus far has been a beast of burden
weight of the fallen on your shoulders
as far as i can see right now is as good a time as any
to spend some time down by the river

show me what your good book is for
cause i don’t wanna fight anymore
if it were today
would i see what you’d betray me for
all the little monsters in your head
could just be the lives you have led
still it doesn’t change,
yes, we are all in this together

look up from the page
and try to hear me say that it’s alright
i’d swallow my rage
if you would hear me say that it’s alright
look up from the page
if you can hear me say that it’s alright
the war that you wage
is gonna end today ’cause it’s alright


This Is Not a Love Song

chorus
This is not a love song,
Just a piece of what you give to me.
This is not a love song,
Just some peace for what you give to me.

Broken in dark corners
You found me washed upone the shore
Wanting all of life to fill me
And praying hard for so much more.

Broken in dark corners
I saw you walk along the shore
Wanting all of life to fill you
In your love affair with war.

It seems there’s two of us in starlight
Left behind tomorrow’s dawn
So let us drink a toast to midnight
And rest a bit ’til bitter’s gone.

chorus
