Face The Sky

Please don’t be afraid of what you are
And don’t turn back, for we have come too far
When the wind is blowing
And the stars are glowing
Remember how far they have to fall

Just don’t look back— there is nothing there to see
I swear I’d die for you, so don’t quit life for me
When the map is lost
And there’s a sea to cross
Remember, your soul needs love to breathe


The sun still rises for the day
Soon the night will fall away
I see the moon within your eyes
But I can’t bear to hear its cries
Journey on, I’ll be right there
I’ll wipe your tears and braid your hair
Feel my love and you will see
There’s no grave that’s holding me


The water’s deep, so face the sky and float
The world can look so big when you don’t have a boat.
When the thunder rolls
And tears at your soul
Remember a rose needs rain to grow

The battle’s calling me, but I promise I’ll come back
Family lasts until the grave, but I’ll love you more than that
When you’re dark inside
And all your hope has died
Remember, my home is where you’re at


The sun still rises for the day
Soon the night will fall away
I see the moon within your eyes
But I can’t bear to hear its cries
Journey on, I’ll be right there
I’ll wipe your tears and braid your hair
Feel my love and you will see
There’s no grave that’s holding me


Feel my love and you will see
There’s no grave holding me
