The tide is slow
He walks the shore
Dreams and is singing
For the wicked a lullaby
In every moment giving
In every second living
Just a heartbeat away
Just a heartbeat away

In every word he’s spoken
Kept every vow unbroken
Just a heartbeat away
Just a heartbeat away
For the sleepless a lullaby

Soothing voices
Calling, awaken
Teardrops, laughter
I’m blessed, forsaken

Tie me, guide me
Free me, encage me
Sing me, softly
Lead me
Unfrighten
What I can’t see

We follow the piper’s dawning
A star in a cloudless morning
Just a heartbeat away
Just a heartbeat away

Whenever we’re prone to give in
Whenever we’re far from living
A heartbeat’s step each day
From the chosen path we stray
For the restless a lullaby

Soothing voices
Calling, awaken
Teardrops, laughter
I’m blessed, forsaken

Tie me, guide me
Free me, encage me
Sing me, softly
Lead me
Unfrighten
What I can’t see

Wastelands – we are scattered without a trace
We are stranded (we are stranded)
Quicksand – slowly spiraling out of life
We’re falling deep (we’re feeling deep)
Confined- we are wretched and all we seek
Understanding (understanding)
We’ll find – our heart is a promised land
Awaiting us, awaiting us

Soothing voices
Calling, awaken
Teardrops, laughter
I’m blessed, forsaken
Tie me, guide me
Free me, encage me
Sing me, softly
Lead me
Unfrighten
What I can’t see
