"This Blood Is Our Own" as written by and Stuart Mclamb....
You chased the storm
And then I followed
The sun was burning like it'd never come up tomorrow (tomorrow)

And the dirt on your face
Was the ashes
Though I could never see through those long eyelashes

Waiting to catch that lightening
For now we'll wait and see what grows
All we've reaped and all that we've sown
This blood is our own

Raise your head
You've gotta get better
They said you were brave, but
They never said you were clever

Waiting to catch that lightening
For now we'll wait and see what grows
All we've reaped is all that we've known
And now we're buried together

    General CommentThis is a beautiful song :) I'm not sure I totally know what the meaning is, but I am going to take a guess...

    I think that it might have to do with a couple growing older together ["the dirt on your face was the ashes"- like maybe that's a way of saying wrinkles from working so hard, from smiling/laughing in life, from just living etc], trying to live life to it's fullest by chasing the storm [All we've reaped and all that we've sown, this blood is our own]. And then maybe one of them is sick and the other is encouraging the other to get healthy again ["raise your head, you've got to get better"].

    So I don't know if this is anywhere close to the actual meaning, I just thought I'd take a shot at it :)
