lyrics

Forgive me father for I think I have sinned
My cold hands are calloused, there’s rain in the wind
Begging your pardon -- Cause I’m sliding again
The shelter, the storm -- Honey please let me in

Promise turns poison and dreams turn to lies
What caught me off guard was nobody’s surprise
A flake of your life blows away in a night
A baptism fire of rolling blue lights

Soul sister mercy, in a pair soft eyes
A warm place to lie down, and loosen the binds
Hold me, and dare me to get through the night
And sift through the rubble of rolling blue light

Lost in the tempest, and buried in lights --
Cut like a rattlesnake, cold as a knife
Crowned with the thorns of a thousand goodbyes
The scales fell away from my reticent eyes.

Let’s gather together, we’re back here again
Stung from the memory, burned from the wind
Our thirstyboots tattered the souls have worn thin
I’ll know what to say, if I see you again


Chorus
We’ll make a holiday
Hallelujah
We’ll heal and celebrate
Hallelujah
Our shimmering mistakes
Hallelujah
The sacred mess we’ve made
Hallelujah…

It’s artists, gypsies, showmen and shaman trying to get it right. It’s an invitation–to join. ... more
