lyrics

the mountain seemed closer
then it really was
the tarred road eternal
slicing through the salt flats
sparkling in the simmering sun
the country
laid out before us
from the northern great plains,
to the camel colored hills
of San Ramon
we drove on through the night
crossing state lines
some unspoken promise
calling us
calling us west

our world was in you
with your golden hair
now brown
and wide eyes shy of two
now lined in kohl
you had us to yourself then
angel seed
sown into the heartland.
sewn into the heart
a thread unbroken

the long road lead us to her door
the scent of jasmine filled the air
we laid beneath the slow sway of a willow tree
all color faded to white
waiting for the unknown
waiting for her
and with the grace of god in her stride
she arrived...
when she pulled us into her lap
you were the first
and like a great house over you
we were in her arms
halleluja!
halleluja!
