Beth Crowley Don’t Think Just Run

You don’t know yet where you’re going

If it’s better than where you are coming from

Settle down

This feels right somehow

You meet twists and turns every corner

But each step you take brings you closer

To everything that’s achingly familiar

And at the edges of your mind, your mind

Something is whispering to go

Into the unknown

And see what you find

So deep breath in

You’re meant for this

Everyone wants to know

If you’re the answer they’ve been searching for

All eyes on you

So much to prove

Whoever you were back then

You won’t ever be again

Remember how far you’ve come

Don’t think just run

You forced yourself to dig deeper

When you redefined the impossible

Can’t give in

To the hopelessness

Some rules are meant to be broken

You won’t be confined by them anymore

This might be your one chance at redemption

It’s all or nothing

Make your stand, you stand

You reached the edge there is no choice

Now you have to jump

And see where you land

So deep breath in

You’re meant for this

Everyone wants to know

If you’re the answer they’ve been searching for

All eyes on you

So much to prove

Whoever you were back then

You won’t ever be again

Remember how far you’ve come

Don’t think just run

There might be peace on the other side

Your memories on the other side

Nothing to lose on the other side

You won’t be scared of the other side

What might be there on the other side

The world is new on the other side

So deep breath in

You’re meant for this

Everyone wants to know

If you’re the answer they’ve been searching for

All eyes on you

So much to prove

Whoever you were back then

You won’t ever be again

Remember how far you’ve come

Don’t think just run

Beth Crowley All I Know

I’ve been burned too many times

I’ve made mistakes, but God knows I’ve tried

Now I think I’ve got it right with you

I can’t say that I’m not scared

I’m terrified of how much I care

But I don’t want to be anywhere

But here, with you

Who can say what tomorrow holds

Where I’ll end up if I take this road

People come and people go

I love you, and that’s all I know

You trusted your heart to me

I’ve guarded mine so carefully

But the time has come

To set it free for you

And I wish I knew how long we’ll have

It’s like you blink and so much time has passed

At the end when my heart beats its last

I will still want you

Who can say what tomorrow holds

Where I’ll end up if I take this road

People come and people go

I love you, and that’s all I know

Who can say what tomorrow holds

Where I’ll end up if I take this road

People come and people go

I love you and that’s all I know

I love you

That’s all I need to know

Beth Crowley My Forgiveness

I never claimed to be a saint

but keep in mind neither are you

you wield your book like it’s your greatest weapon

but did you ever stop and think that maybe

that was not its intention, its intention

So you can gnash your teeth and stomp your feet

Say that I’ll have hell to pay

but this tapestry of hate you’ve woven

has begun to fray

because in the end words are only words

yet you still hide behind them no matter who you hurt

so forgive me if I do not follow suit

then again who says my forgiveness lies with you

You have the right to disagree

For what it’s worth I’ll respect your beliefs

Can’t you afford the same compassion

to your fellow man even if you do not

understand his actions, his actions

So you can gnash your teeth and stomp your feet

Say that I’ll have hell to pay

but this tapestry of hate you’ve woven

has begun to fray

because in the end words are only words

yet you still hide behind them no matter who you hurt

so forgive me if I do not follow suit

then again who says my forgiveness lies with you

And if your heaven won’t let me in

because I refuse to cast my stones

I’ll spend eternity wandering

searching for a place to call my own

but I won’t be alone

I never claimed to be a saint

but keep in mind neither are you

So you can gnash your teeth and stomp your feet

Say that I’ll have hell to pay

but this tapestry of hate you’ve woven

has begun to fray

because in the end words are only words

yet you still hide behind them no matter who you hurt

so forgive me if I do not follow suit

then again who says my forgiveness lies with you

Beth Crowley Skin And Bones

I used to dream about the heroes of stories

As life became an endless night

When hope was gone you resurrected my spirit

Brought me from darkness into light

I can sense a storm is coming

Anchoring you to me

Far beneath my skin and bones

I harbor my divided soul

My greatest source of strength

Might be my downfall

But love was not a choice for me

I held my breath and took a leap

And when I lose myself

You help me stand so tall

I listen closely and hear sweet strains of music

I’m captured in a reverie

Through all these years you’ve been my quiet salvation

Reflecting who I want to be

Please for my sake no more talk of

Blessings and curses tonight

Far beneath my skin and bones

I harbor my divided soul

My greatest source of strength might be my downfall

But love was not a choice for me

I held my breath and took a leap

When I lose myself

You help me stand so tall

Standing in silence we look out at the water

Amazed how much the world has changed

I see behind your eyes such wisdom and sorrow

You’re wondering if we’re still the same

I felt more love than I could

Give in just one lifetime

Far beneath my skin and bones

I safekeep our united souls

My greatest source of strength was not my downfall

Because love was not a choice for me

I held your hand and took a leap

I’ll never lose myself

You help me stand so tall
