Lyrics

The Day You Took My Name

Written By: Mark Philpot

Standing at the altar, saying I would
For better or for worse
I can tell you that I meant it, strong as I could
Down to the last word

I know, I couldn’t know, the trouble that might come our way
But I know I love you more, than the day you took my name

I know I the coming years, we’ll have a thousand civil wars
And both of us will bleed
I’ve heard there’s nothing stronger than, the love sacrifice affords
It can kill, but it can free

And I said, I’d give my last breath, before I’d ever let yours fade
And I know I love you more, than the day you took my name

You’re Rilke’s tightened bow,
your symphony and hope
You’re the myth I can believe

You’re sky of sky
Of Grace and Life,
And a glimpse of beauty we’ve never seen

So when this life rises, and gives by it’s grace
And we’re bathed in it’s light
Or it comes like a thief, and flood and fire take
I won’t let you leave my side

Cause in 50 years, if I’m still here, holding out my feeble hand to yours
I know I’ll love you more

Love, I’ll love you more, than the day you took my name

Don't Let Go

Written By: Mark Philpot

We got struggle in our blood
And glory in our bones
We’re islands and oceans between
Till a heartache brings us close

When the night and the flame
It calls you by name,
Don’t let go, don’t let go

When every hope breaking
It feels like a blindfold on your soul
It keeps you from the light that reminds you
You’re not walking this alone

And everything you’re feeling
It’s a purging, it’s a healing of your ghosts
Don’t let go

Cause I know what it’s like when nobody knows
You’re in the middle of a fight, and the deeper that it goes
It’s like a wrecking ball, and a new day rising
Laying down a life worth finding
And it’s yours, Oh, it’s yours

So we call to the darkness,
come with your fire
We got a fire of our own, and you won’t break us,
no, not tonight

And it’s just fear that we’re losing,
And none of us would choose it, but it’s right
Oh, it’s time

Cause I know what it’s like when nobody knows
You’re in the middle of a fight, and the deeper that it goes
It’s like a wrecking ball, and a new day rising
Laying down a life worth finding
And it’s yours, Oh, it’s yours

You know I’ve seen the light and we’re not going down (x2)

Cause I know what it’s like when nobody knows
You’re in the middle of a fight, and the deeper that it goes
It’s like a wrecking ball, and a new day rising
Laying down a life worth finding
And it’s yours, Oh, it’s yours
