Down In The Land

The connection to the land brings me close to who I am. To share that with who I love is a quest of the heart.

Lyrics:

In the silence…you called me.
In the darkness…I felt you.
I knew that the time had come
So I snapped the chain and began to run….
Home..one of my many homes
Haven’t given up the race,but it was time for me to roam.

From the concrete to the Carolinas
I came to as the distance grew.
City anxiety fading behind me,
On a frosted mountain I extended roots….
Deep under icy falls shines a moon from a blue sky,
eagles calling, as I wish you by my side
to watch the sun burn down the night!

My heart has been here before
With your love my peace assured
I found a heaven upon the ground
Grace surpassing reason’s bounds….

chorus: Down in the land, the soil melts my shield.
Down upon the land, beauty takes me down to who I am.

Who I am…someday I might understand
When I’m holding you upon our land.

My heart has been here before
With your love my peace assured
I found a heaven upon the ground
Grace surpassing reason’s bounds….

Chorus
2nd chorus:

Down in the land, the soil melts my urban shield.
Down upon the land, beauty takes me down to who I am.
