Come and Gone

The moment's come and gone
Now a memory left on my tongue
when I hesitated
I don't know why, so hard to tell you
what's been on my mind
still I just bide my time

These things I know tend to come and go
I want you to know, there's more than I'm owning
These things I hide, they live on inside
It's a matter a pride that I let you know it

The moment came and went
Didn't I owe you more than my silence
if our love is true

shouldn't it withstand
these tiny pressures,
why do we dance like they're eggshells

Someday, got to find a way
to tell you just how I've been feeling
Somehow gonna let it out
so we can begin to be real

Lately Come

Lately come
through a shattered night
Your broken world
can’t take the light

Sister how
much strength do you harbor
That tidal hell
never pulled you under

God lift our eyes
beyond this hard existence
Show us the mold
that we may know your intentions
And when we’re called
fill us with presence

Take my time
for your trust
Take my sight
until your eyes adjust

Will you let these burning
specters slowly fade
Will you give each morning
a little more of your weight
