Lyrics

Sir Alan

Written By: Emma West

I'm a musician, but I don't have your taste
Your style in music is so hip and up-t-date
You like Ben Folds and Bjork and you are
Such a connoisseur, Sir Alan
You swear that coffee never stops you sleeping
You're working out again to get your muscles back
You look handsome to me and I am
Such a devotee, Sir Alan

I like corny and you like arty
I want gourmet, and you want a coke and fries
Most of what makes you special is inside

So roll up on your steed and we will ride
Into the battle
You're my hero, when we're in a fight
It's your side I'm taking
I am so glad you are my
My weekday working knight

I'm doing dishes, you're designing systems
I'm making dinner and you're making all the dough
we're not modern at all and that is
Just the way life goes, Sir Alan.
We're on a mission to defy the numbers
We're hanging in there, yeah we're pulling out the stops
Let's make this organ sing, yeah, make this
Marriage a beautiful thing, Sir Alan

It's okay if you don't like parties
I like talking and your like technology
I think we're complimentary, you and me

So roll up on your steed and we will ride
Into the battle
You're my hero, when we're in a fight
You will protect me
I am so glad you are my
My weekday working knight

I know you get tired, and I get scared
The little ones need so much and we're always forging ahead.
But you can rest by my side
And I promise I will try
Not to get stressed, to give you my best
to help you get back in the saddle, so you can

Ride
Into the future
You're my hero, when we're in a fight
I know we're winning
I am so glad you are my
My weekday working knight

My weekday working knight
we're in this together
In this forever
Doo doo doo doo doo doo
I am so glad you are my
My weekday working knight

Resurrection Day

Written By: Emma West

Resurrection Day

Sky unfurled across the water,
Shining sunlight, rippling laughter,
You.

Water’s embrace, standing halfway,
Hesitation, I am waiting for
You.

Sun is at its zenith, resurrection day
Joyful recognition, resurrection day
I am new in your eyes, I am a child
Except more innocent

Water waist-deep, make my promise,
Falling backwards, I’m sinking, I’m dying with You.
Sunlit surface, I break sky-ward,
Filling new lungs, I’m breathing, I’m living for You!

Sun is at its zenith, resurrection day
Joyful recognition, resurrection day
I am new in your eyes, I am a child
Except more innocent

I go under, the world is lost to me
And the sky breaks open, pouring light over me
And I’ve found freedom holding your hand
You raise me up again
Raise me from the dead

You stood, dripping, in the Jordan
Dove descending, you are God’s Son
When you come into your kingdom
Remember me
