Even If

Even If

 

Even if it takes a little longer

With each step I feel more joy and pride

Every set back only makes me stronger

Because of who I am inside

 

Even if I’ve gone in wrong directions

Followed unmarked roads ’round every bend

Knowing we are made for self correction

On a path that has no end

 

You may say I’m down and out

And that may be half true

But one thing I can sing about

Is all the ways I feel for you

No matter if it’s right or wrong

The things I say and do

I put them all inside a song

I love it when you sing about them, too

 

Even if I have to climb another mountain

Cross the ocean to a distant shore

All the extra miles I’m not even countin’

For the ones who I adore

 

Even if the Earth and we are quakin’

And there seems to be no end in sight

Something in us all will soon awaken

With the morning comes new light

(Repeat Chorus)

 

Even if I have to trek through stormy weather

I’ll protect you from the wind and rain

Every time the lightening beckons

thunder

I’ll be by your side again.

 

Even if a river’s over flowin’

I’ll be damned before I let flood

And if I cannot tell you where I’m

goin’

All I know is love

Runs in my blood

 

 

(Repeat Chorus)

Even If

 

Even if it’s gonna take a little longer

With each step I take I feel more joy and pride

Every set back only makes me stronger

Because of who I am inside

 

Even if I’ve gone in wrong directions

Followed unmarked roads ’round every bend Knowing we are made for self correction

On n a path that has no end

 

You may say I’m down and out

And that may be half true

But one thing I can sing about

Is all the love I feel for you

No matter if it’s right or wrong

The things I say and do

I put them all inside a song

I hope you sing about them, too

 

Even if I have to climb another mountain

Cross the ocean to a distant shore

All the extra miles that Heaven’s countin’

For the One who I adore

 

Even if the Earth and we are quakin’

And there seems to be no end in sight

Something in us all will soon awaken

Making everything turn out alright

(Repeat Chorus)

 

Even if I have to trek through stormy weather

I’ll protect you from the wind and rain

Every time the thunder beckons lightening

You will think of me again.

 

Even if a river’s over flowin’

I’ll be damned before I let it flood

And if I’m soundin’ bigger than my britches

I’d rather be called names than dwell in mud

When I Am Free

When I Am Free

When I am free

I’ll no longer be weighed down with problems

All my doubts and indecision

Will be left behind

No more hurt or pain

Will I entertain

Nothing more will bother me

When I am

Free

When I am free

I’ll no longer need to ask permission

All my thoughts and intuitions

Will be clear and right

I will understand

Who I really am

And begin to bathe in light

When I’mmm

Free

Finally,

Almost time to let go

Just when I don’t know
Nor should I

It will be

A release of some size

A familiar surprise

Awaits me

When my body and mind

Are both left behind

Once again I’ll arise

And see

Friends on white opal sands

Extending their hands

Singing songs with my family

A harmonious welcome

Awaits by the sea

When I am free

When I am free

I will loosen up my grip and let go

Sigh goodbye to frets and ego

To become renewed

All that will remain

Besides my name

Is the love I’ll still carry with me

When I am

Free

.

When I am free

There is no such thing as foreign language

No more need for war and anguish

All that falls away

Every misery

Gives into gravity

As I blend with wind and the day

When –

Finally

It’s my turn to return

Oh how I burn

To get there

Gracefully

Like a Phoenix I’ll  rise

See without eyes

Old embers

Up from ashes of me

Until I am free

To begin to be

Infinitely

With my wings open wide

I lift up and glide

And then soar into

Forever more

All the love I’m aware of

Becomes part of me

When I am free

When I am free

I’ll return to a home I’ve longed for since birth

God‘s reward for living on Earth

Where no one grows old

Though I can’t explain

I  could make the rain

Turn to lacy white flakes when it’s cold

Or  place rainbows

When I am free

We will gather round and tell our stories

While we open Morning Glories

Singing hymns of praise

Lighting Fireflies

Helping paint the skies

Doing chores like this eternally

When  I am

Free                                                      –
