Here’s another clip from my first Brick Chapel gig. Life In Song #495, “Gone A Long Time” which is all about the spiritual but not religious FACT, that we are here for just a brief moment in the vastness of eternity. we’ve been gone a long time and we WILL be gone for a long time. So we might as well take the chance we have to be alive!
Gone A Long Time
Song # 495 | 12/27/2014 | recorded live at Brick Chapel 9/9/2023
I’ve been gone a long time
In the cage of my mind (x2)
But I am fully present with you right here and now
Can you hear the crows call
As the night starts to fall? (x2)
They’ve found a red tail hawk sleeping in an old dead tree
What if God was asleep
And we were her dream (x2)
Do you think she’ll still remember us when she wakes up?
What if I was a bird
And you were a tree? (x2)
And I landed in your branches, then flew away
We’ll be gone a long time
Back to the divine (x2)
So we might as well take the time we have to be alive!
