  1. Little Faith

From the recording Little Faith

Lyrics

I watched her floating
In sepia meadows
I saw her get hands dirty
On the handle of a shovel
Spreading seeds in the muddy black earth
Feeding Mother Nature
In the raindrops and the cow manure. 
 
She worshiped the land
Like the native Indians
She woke up with the sunrise
Just like her mom and dad did.
She brushed away the wayward wisps
Of stubborn German brown hair
Frozen like a statue
In an orchard built on hope and dares.
 
Cold rain
Black night
Slam the shutters tight
I feel the storm a comin’
In the flicker of a candlelight.
Her shadow’s dimmer now
I see the worry in her face
She smiled and softly asked me:
Why do you have such little faith? 
 
She captured all the sunlight
In her raven black eyes
She rode upon the moonbeams
She shimmered in the night. 
And I swore I saw her hidden wings
When she danced around the fog
In the darkest of the midnights
When she quieted the bullfrogs. 
 
And she conquered all the circling winds
She whispered chants and spells
She raised her arms in thankfulness
For every breath she felt.
Cause her body's just a bag of bones
No different than this dirt
And one day she'd return to it
Unfortunately, when my head was turned.
 
Cold rain
Black night
Slam the shutters tight
I feel the storm a comin’
In the flicker of a candlelight.
Her shadow’s dimmer now
I see the worry in her face
She smiled and softly asked me:
Why do you have such little faith? 
 
Now she counted on the stars
To be right where they’re supposed to be
She found the good in everything
That I refused to see.
She studied every weathered line
Every nuance on my face then
She said to me in quiet tones
You need to join the human race again. 
 
And the Fall
Came and went so fast
Her paleness matched the snowflakes
She said you must not hold my hand. 
December robbed her from my bed
I was left behind
I could not hold on to someone
Who was simply just a breath in time.
