I'M ON YOUR SIDE

Eleven Songs
(2008)
Out on the street you don't feel safe
In a crowded plaza you're alone
In this life you love and you hate sometimes
A prisoner of glass and stone
You reach for smells and sounds
That hold you and earth you down
Your heart's too fast and breaking inside
Your head spins you vicious little lies
Yeah, but I'm on your side
Yeah, I'm on your side

Black dogs and blues move on
You'll head away for oceans once more
Where nothing is lost or is won
We lighten our load for the shore
The hope I sing rings true
Because in this world there is you
Like the ebb and the flow of the tide
You'll take the blues in your stride
Yeah, and I'm on your side
Yeah, I'm on your side

I see a warrior who's walking in light
I see poetry and songs sung true
I see courage in the darkest of your nights
I see armour of love draped around you
I saw you almost not go
I saw you breathe deeply and know
Black dogs whisper lies
You, you are ancient and wise
Yeah, and I'm on your side
Yeah, I'm on your side
