lyrics

THE LETTERS OF ST. PAUL

The bite of early morning frost tells you so-
No one's exempt from the stinging slap of life.
We all suffer mistreatment and failed relationships,
Yet others are waltzing and you're still staggering.

No more pointing out all the faults of your friends.
Stop discounting your abilities.
You've been silently applauding the misfortunes of your peers
When your own feet are nailed to the floor.

St. Paul's letters, brimming with joy, were written in the bowels of his prison.
So sound a silver trumpet. Let them know you're here. There's no courage without adversity.
There's a sadness in your eyes that belies your losses.
Picture the summer in your mind. Then it will be summer all the time.

What is it that you want to be realized?
Pretend that it's happening right now.
Touch it and taste it- use all of your senses
To record a movie in your mind's eye.

St. Paul's letters, brimming with hope, were written in the bowels of his prison.
So sound a silver trumpet. Let them know you're here. There's no courage without adversity.
There's a heaviness in your voice that belies your losses.
Picture the summer in your mind. Then it will be summer all the time.
