Only Love 

Only love can sail this soul
Only love can set this boat to coarse
Only love will be there when I go
To reach for the depth, the unknown
Only love can sail this soul

It’s written in the wind                                          
It’s laced in every breath we breath
It’s written in your hair as I stroke it
Your lips as I kiss your resolve
Only love can sail this soul
Only love can break all of this illusion
When I tumble and fall 
I know it’s the grace that comes in   
That comes in,                                                              
Oh love sail this soul

Only love can sing this soul
I’ve roamed the mountains
To the breaking waves
And I met the storm wild in it’s raging
When nothing could be in control 
I saw love guide me home

It’s sending shivers running down my spine          
As it comes in to surround me                       
I know I can meet the divine

Only love can hold
The fullness and the emptiness
I’m on my knees as I see
The bounty this life, it gifts to me
It gifts to me

I’m made of tears, made of longing
Made of crystal stone
I’m made of loving, made of kindness
Wrapped in prayers and bone.
I’m made of sunlight, made of memory
And all I’ve ever known is
Love sail this soul
Love sail me home…
