  • Begin again
    No easy trick without a guide or walking stick
    Begin before the bells of twilight peal

    Downhill town
    The road ahead
    Spiral, as a serpent's bed
    A teaspoon of desire for my meal

    I trade my tears
    To ask the Lord
    For proof of love
    If only for the consolation
    Of gazing at the stars above

    Amen, amen, amen

    The road is steep
    The air is thin
    I hear a voice inside my skin
    Don't be afraid
    Your days won't end with night
    Feel the sun
    Drink the rain
    Let your body heal its pain
    Bathe beneath a waterfall of light

    I trade my tears
    To ask the Lord
    For proof of love
    If only for the explanation
    That tells me what my dreams are made of

    Amen, amen
    The valley below
    An ocean of debris

    I ask the Lord for proof of love
    Love is all I seek
    Love is all I seek
    And when at times my words desert me
    Music is the tongue I speak

    I rest my head beside a white oak tree
    No deadly nightshade, Belladonna
    Dare lay a leaf on me

    Silent night
    Still as prayer
    Darkness fills with light
    Love on Earth is everywhere Writer/s: PAUL SIMON
