You Are

See the light that streams from the darkness, from a soul who is weeping.
Hear their silent lips, the shuffle of tired feet.
Bring your gifts to the doorstep of a heart in a sling.
Bring your juice pressed from fruit both sour and sweet.

You are the poet, you are the clown, you are the artist able to fashion
a new smile on someone draggled by despair.
Take the lead, plant the seed of hope with compassion.
Help a shattered spirit find repair.

Rain, tears and fears, the falling and the rising:
necessary grayness for the whetting of new growth.
Life and death in circles ever flowing.
Inspiration, expiration -- not one but both.

Thank you! Note that Hendrik and Steiner sent this soundtrack to me with a temp "working name" of "You Are." They said I could write any kind of lyrics I wanted and sing them in any way I saw fit. This is what came out in just one session. 2 am inspiration, I guess. I never have those late-night sessions any more.

This moves me
Your lyrics fit the music in a way that makes me feel the emotion of them. Hope is always rising, tears of sadness will turn to joy.
