Carry On 04:43
Every morning I awake to find My child, my sweetest kin And I feel the love you gave And I give it now to him I know your heart would fill with joy To see his dark brown eyes To hold him in your arms And sing him lullabies The truth that you're gone, it hurts every day But I'll be okay, 'cause I carry your love with me I'm gonna carry I'm gonna carry on As evening light turns mountaintops From gold to rose to blue So each new day reveals A different shade of missing you From questions never asked To stories never told To darkness that's descended down Upon our family home The truth something's dying, it hurts everyday But I'll be okay, 'cause I carry your love with me I'm gonna carry I'm gonna carry on

Where do you find the time? I'm still picking at my teeth for a rhyme Where do you find the time To wring from your chest such gorgeous lines Your voice it jumps miles like the moon And makes this summer darkness bloom And from the next room you're singing You're singing me to sleep Where do you find the time to pour out from your fingertips such sweetness? Your voice it carries like the sea And blankets me from head to feet And from above me you're singing You're singing me to sleep

26 Years 03:00
Mother, since you have known me I have grown, I have changed I have scars you will never see Where are the sirens for our tragedies? Don't let them fade away For 26 years I knew your love Hallelujah And I will try to love as you loved Hallelujah Frightful, the slow unravel The anchor undone, the sickness unnamed No, I will never accept this change As time pulls you further from me I keep a candle burning within That I will someday see you again For 26 years I knew your love Hallelujah And I will try to love as you loved Hallelujah

Our story was long, but who holds it now? Lines have been broken I barely hear your name spoken aloud Time shows no care Memories disappear Time shows no care For those who had hoped I'd find blessings here Or solace in "meant to be" Or some kind of peace through the years: Time shows no care No it don't dull despair Time shows no care Last night I woke by the light of the moon Down by the river Five long years later, seeing clear and true: Time shows no care And you're gone forever Time shows no care It's lonely
