lyrics

Blindly savoring a sweet sweet taste,
walking North toward the sun
Asking, angered, a hard hard question
razor tongue cuts the endless blessings

Lord, when it becomes too much
to bear, I must be frank
Love I trust, and pain I can take
but you on your knees in the gravel driveway--
Oh, what a sorry sight!
Grief won't lose its bite

Lemon sunbeams light up the stable
a picture in your camera lens
Swollen lungs betray the eyes of wonder,
looking West to find some sense

(When I wake up in the morning,
my heart's full of your warm breath on my face
I don't know how long it's been since you last came--
What can I do? What can I do?)

Lord, when it becomes too much
to bear, I must be frank
Love I trust, and pain I can take
but you on your knees in the gravel driveway--
Oh, what a sorry sight!
Grief won't lose its bite
