Blest Are You

18 Mar 2001

Maybe I could fly if I could get up off my knees
I could swim if I weren’t trapped under this sea
Maybe this desert will dry up in my dreams
And this song will drown out the screams

Call me weak
Call me a fool
What he said was
Blest are you

I had a woman down in Mexico
Things were hard and one day she let go
Now I run from the cloud that covers me
Get on board I’m bound for glory


It’s much brighter than you’d think down here
I can see further than you’d think from so near
Maybe one day I’ll get up on that silver screen
And end these days of falling in between
