1. Rise and Shine

From the recording Careless Truth

In cart Not available Out of stock


There’s a rose on the stoop of my parent’s house
A single rose today
A flower lies on a concrete bed
The quilt-maker has flown away

Flown away
Without warning
Flown away
Without a word

Rise and shine

The air is still, the sky is overcast
The clouds will not release the rain
When all the days pass in one last breath
The force of your love still remains

I remain
I remain
Your friend

Rise and shine

Take your place
in the timeless light
and shine
