Songs

                       

Whole

A tin roof, a thin room, a woman and a child
I cried because mercy found no place in your pride
A part of me’s still there, a part that waited for you
On a day long gone…that moved on… I’m still to
 
And the family that I thought I left behind
Again, again and again, I find inside
Vivid, Buried, Denied or Embraced
This cross that I carry shows on my face
 
And whatever flows like a dark melody in me
With this song I let it go. It sets me free
I still have you. I always did. All along
Everyone needs someone believing they never went that wrong
 
A tin roof, a thin room, a woman and a child
The sun breaks in. It's different inside
I'm free... Whole... Alive... Renewed...
Karma lies broken as my eyes… see anew
 
And the family that I thought I left behind
Again, again and again, I find inside
Vivid. Unforgotten. After all these years
Coz I'm a sea of forgiveness & not a river of tears
