Lyrics

SISTER

Sister, I need a place to hide
I was stumbling along inthe dark when I saw your light
Sister, I need a little time
To lay down in slence and see what I can find

sister, got lost a few miles back
Somehow I made a wrong turn at the crossroads and got off track
sister, I?m not shingering ?cause it?s cold
I?m just afraid I can?t remember where I was trying to go

All I knkow is when I started I held my head high
The way was clear, my destination wsa insight
Then the fog rolled in and blinded my view
And the road was blocked so I took a detour

Sister, is this my journey?s end
Or a pause to lick my wounds, a place to mend
Sister, I?m not asking for the truth
Just a hand to hold me up and help me make it through

All I know is once I?d walk formiles and never run out of breath
Eyes full of fire, burning to be put to the test
But now it?s all I can do to take another step
And cross your threshold to take me rest
