I CAN’T SEE VERY FAR

Leave a comment

I was about to give up and that’s no lie
cardinal landed outside my window
threw his head back and sang a song so beautiful it made me cry
took me back to a childhood tree, full of birds and dreams

from this one place I can’t see very far
in this one moment I’m square in the dark
these are the things I will trust in my heart:
you can see something else, something else

I don’t know what’s making me so afraid
tiny cloud over my head, heavy and grey with a hint of dread
I don’t like to feel this way

take me back to a window seat
with clouds beneath my feet

from this one place I can’t see very far
in this one moment I’m square in the dark
these are the things I will trust in my heart:
you can see something else, something else

 

CAPTIVE TO A BLINDING DOUBT

Leave a comment

I know I should be strong enough to walk alone,
to make my own way down this winding road
but I’m broken and I need you, please, to pull me through
I need someone to hold on to
pull me through
I don’t know who else to turn to
when life is a struggle and I am in trouble, I need you to pull me through

breathe out
I’m a captive to a blinding doubt
I’m trying hard just to figure it out
If you can hear me than I need you, please, to pull me through
I need someone to hold on to
pull me through
I don’t know who else to turn to
when life is a struggle and I am in trouble, I need you to pull me through

I’m reaching out, I’m reaching out

pull me through
I need someone to hold on to
pull me through
I don’t know who else to turn to
when life is a struggle and I am in trouble, I need you to pull me through
