Tears At A Moment’s Notice
Song #44 | Spring 1980 | CD: tbd
Will we risk tears at a moment’s notice?
Love that dares to show?
Arms that share the aching?
Eyes that always know?
Will we dare to live our lives
Among the wide open spaces?
Will we dare to reach inside
To touch and heal the damaged places? Will we dare to lose ourselves
In the “dangerous” embraces?
And when the empty, righteous ones
Tangle you aside
With dulling exhortations
That always fail to hide
The deeper things around us That no pat answer can describe,
Can you see the possibilities
Of living to the edge
Can you feel the sense of liberty
In what some call “sacrilege”
Did you know that being fully human
Is a God given privilege?
