lyrics

HEART IN THE WRECKAGE

brother, your mercy
for the way I’m cryin'
seeking consolation

brother, your patience
in my hour of need
my children
are so far from me

brother your shoulder
and your even hand
when my body needs you
to be a man

brother your silence
and your listening
for the heart
in the wreckage

It doesn’t seem wrong
baby what’s love for
If it ain’t for this
I don’t want it anymore
You know I can’t be strong
Every single day
You got to hold the light
Until the darkness goes

brother, your anger
you can lay it down
my gentle tears
are no enemy

brother - stop yourself
from losing ground
and killing off
all that’s good in me

It doesn’t seem wrong
baby what’s love for
If it ain’t for this
I don’t want it anymore
You know I can’t be strong
Every single day
You got to hold the light
Until the darkness goes

brother, your words
they don’t know what they say
they find no peace
in their reckoning

and brother, I see him
he who knows the way
without his mind
to the heart
in the wreckage

It doesn’t seem wrong
baby what’s love for
If it ain’t for this
I don’t want it anymore
You know I can’t be strong
Every single day
You got to hold the light
Until the darkness goes
