Lyrics

Quickening
(Music and Lyrics © by Madelyn Lavender/ASCAP)

A quickening of the soul
Breathing an inner hello
My friend forever
An inner acceptance
For the moment

A quickening, quickening
Quickening of the soul

Fleeting fickle attention
Expecting rejection
From the outer world
Preparing myself to somehow
Be good enough

A quickening, quickening
Quickening of the soul

When it all comes down
to the essence of now
Inconsequential grasping
Of raw, hurt emotion
A probable misunderstanding

A quickening, quickening
Quickening of the soul

A quickening of the soul
Breathing an inner hello
New depths of friendship
Opening the basement door
To free the scared and hungry child

A quickening, quickening
Quickening of the soul

A quickening of the soul
Breathing an inner hello
My friend forever
An inner acceptance
For the moment
