On Your Own

From the album Other Songs
Topics: 

 

I cut the cord that tied you

I set you on the road

Ill try to be a harbor

When the sea winds drive you home

Im a place to lay your head

When youre weary to the bone

So stop yourself and rest awhile,

Hug me then youre gone,

 

On your own, on your own

You sail off to somewhere

You know my love will be there

And youll never be alone

On your own.

 

I cant catch you when you stumble

I can only catch your tears

I must wait outside the dark maze

Of your broken-hearted years

And watch for lightning flashes

Of your joys and conquered fears

I listen to your life-song

Sing it strong and clear!

Chorus

 

Theres a promised forged within me

To let you go your ways

To love you without guilt

And to guide you with my praise

Youre my most precious treasure

And pleasure never stays

So I hold with open hand

And bless you all your days

Chorus
