Lyrics

Begin Again

Written By: Danielle Eva

Tides roll in, time unfolds
Lies unravel truth upholds
Drink of water, taste of tears
Making sense of you is a dizzying affair
And I will begin again
I will begin again

Days break away
Carving out our story
Smoothed and shaped by love enduring
Walk in the waves, wash my hands of sorrow
So much brighter here out from underneath your shadow
And I will begin again
I will begin again

Build your love on sinking sand
I’ll be dry on higher ground
Don’t expect to find me
For I am clay, to be changed
I will begin again
I will begin again

I Sing In Blue

Written By: Danielle Eva

Red, red as the ancient soil where you lay me down
Under setting suns when the willow boughed
And the time was come to become one

Rising, a horizon of passions arrival
Declaring that love was reborn in a new way of knowing
Beheld, by two lovers who are as one

My song had returned, a tune of rebirth
A living tapestry, all the colors of you
But you felt the start of rain
And thought you heard the song of pain, you’re gone
Now I sing in blue

Restless, oh heart, surrendering innocence to the piper’s spell
You’re naïve as the leaves on the youngest flower, so green
So mystified, sweet off the vine
