lyrics

Written in the autumn of 2010

This time you came so close
You took the risk and let him in
Then you had to let it go.
And the corners of your heart
Are forever changed by love
Your feet of peace still walk the path.

Somewhere in the distance
You can hear him call your name.

Walk on down the road
Where the light meets your hope.
Close the gate softly behind
As you say goodbye.

Breathing out and breathing deep
Knowing one day it will fit
One day love will meet with peace.
And the way is clear for you
Keep your head and find your stride
Discover something new.

Somewhere in the distance
You will hear him call your name.

Walk on down the road
Where the light meets your hope.
Close the gate softly behind
It’s all right to cry
As you say goodbye.

And though the rain is falling
Tender tears upon the broken land
The promise still remains, the promise still stands
And you know it, you hold it in in your hands.

Walk on down the road
Where the light meets your hope.
Close the gate softly behind
As you say goodbye
Walk into the light.
