Walk on Water

lyrics by: Trevor Cartwright
Written on Jun 05, 2013

Light a candle, and illuminate the dark
Because I feel so lost and estranged
Shattered visions. Broken dreams turn into dust
As I question the reason why I exist

All that I build, and all that I break
Is drenched in mistakes I've made

Is it true that You can walk on water?
Set the captives free? Rescue the lost and confused?
As we wander these paths uncharted
I'll cling onto You. You're the only reason why.

Take your place here. At the wishing well of life
Cast your coin in. Gestures futile and blind.

Toil and build as you search for a reason to exist.
But it only comes through surrender.

Karen MacEanruig commented:
Delightful, friend-even more so at my age. Life in the last year; or so it seems, is as compressed, and as remarkable, as the first year of life. If I were a poet I could put it in a few words (like the "Empty Room") but, I'm not. I'm a ponderous story writer. karenmaceanruig.
