lyrics

The Strangest Thing

It’s the strangest thing to close the door
When the view is so sublime
Here I trust my heart above my eyes lest they be blind

I hear your shadow on the wall
Built before the fall
Bricks and stones and judgment there divide us
Because you know right from wrong
One is weak, the other strong
Until the tilting of the earth becomes apparent

Turning over
That’s how time goes
That’s how faith grows
Where we all falter
At the altar
Where we fault ourselves

Each is paid in kind
Each one knowing the divine
Where the safety of forgiveness knows us deeply
Step the left foot then the right
Dancing through the fear and fright
Lilting to the edge of what is known

Turning over
That’s how time goes
That’s how faith grows
Where we all falter
At the altar
Where we fault ourselves

Wave comes after wave
Looking for someone to save
Sweeping willing hardships out to sea
Still, I can see into your heart
I can see the broken part
Where the mysteries of believing have betrayed you

Turning over
That’s how time goes
That’s how faith grows
Where we all falter
At the altar
Where we fault ourselves

It’s the strangest thing to close the door, when the view is so sublime
Here I trust my heart above my eyes lest they be blind
