#1
blind with vanity
but i once saw

how it was different, those days!
i knew you so well
that i forgot myself
and you were there, always

you held my hand
as i learned of life
through open eyes

but now you show me how
even while falling down
i am high in my own eyes

how i would change it all
how i would see things through and through
yesterday: an unmovable wall
but lord, you make all things new
you're rebuilding me
now you hold my hand
i know this isn't fleeting

i'm now where past and future meet
there between life and living
the ground and my feet: the fleetingway
between closed pages
between taxes and wages
between myself and me

how i would change it all
how i would see things through and through
yesterday: an unmovable wall
but lord, you make all things new
you're rebuilding me
and you're bringing back the things
i let slip free

it's all reconnecting
my feet plant firmly
i am a life now living
We're only strays.
