Tracks

  • Abraham and Isaac

I am walking through the valley of the shadow
I am holding onto everything I know

I am crazy, I am crazy to be walking
To be loving, to be loving You at all

I hear singing, I hear singing through the nightmares
That is calling from the belly of my bones

I am walking, I am walking up the mountain
but I worry I’ll be walking down alone

How many miles?
How many trials?
How many…

I am stepping, I am stepping to the alter
Where I offer to lay his life upon this stone
You are breathing, breathing heavy through your nostrils
You are asking, as your eyes begin to roam

I hear singing, I hear singing through the nightmares
That is calling from the belly of my bones

I am walking, I am walking up the mountain
But I worry that I’ll be walking down alone

How many times?
How many tries?
How many lives?
