Fire In The Eyes
Song #85 | May 1986 | CD:
A fragile dawn steals in through my window
Every day another day
And the wonder of it all still thrills me
In fact it takes my breath away
Everyday I glance outside my window
People rushing byEvery day I wonder if they know
What it means to be alive
Look out hope over hell
Look out faith over fail
Look out truth over lies
The truth shall make you well
Look out dream over scheme
Look out time over dime
Look out fire in the eyes
It saves you every time
We’re an Easter people in a Good Friday world
At least that’s what somebody said
Are we mad dreamers or insane lovers
To worship a God raised from the dead?
Let the evening come and hold us closely
Let morning come and keep us warm
Let the fears and phantoms of this world
Leave us whole and free from harm.
Let the ribbon of this well worn highway
Unravel where it will
Let the drifting blossoms of the springtime
Leave you warm and hopeful still
What is courage if you never face fear?
Will you go the extra mile?
And if I could I’d wrap my arms around you
And leave you with a smile…
