From the album Solace


Reaching hope for you
only to cower
behind what is easy
although we may feel insignificant
we are together
know the change that stirs
altered by a trace
if unremembered can you tell me
where will we find grace

If I don’t care
and avoid your eyes
who am I then
if I don’t try
to meet you somehow
who am I then

If we go to bed
knowing we have lied
about this abandon
back where we began
unable to move
the earth or stars or a human heart
never believed in holy
but he once told me
we start from within
with understanding
it blossoms out
and ripples everywhere

If I bring some love
to this dreaded time
and share who I am
it may not make a dent
but I’ll know who I am
who I am then
