We’d like to show the side of the world you don’t normally see on television.
If I were to throw myself down on the path
Amidst all the fallen warriors of the Light here on the way
Would my spirit be glad to finally be free
With the light of my soul to act as a fuse
to burn away all the illusions I fed myself to bear
to live my life here without you.
And if under the weight of the cross I were to fall
Would you come and comfort me
And give me the sustenance and strength I need
to make it the rest of the way to a form of Calgary you knew
If I were to offer up a prayer that might help you
Could any words I might find be enough to really be true
Have I been given enough clues to finally know what to do
Just to throw a net out to the universe and catch some part of it to give to you
When I promised to serve the plan so long ago
With so many others begging to do their part
How Could I have possibly known
That all of this time wasn’t enough to even make a start.
And all the love you gave to me
I offered up to others so they might have a chance to see
Yet all the time I was seeking to convince myself
It was what I supposed to do.
And there are so many pilgrims here in your waiting room
And each has not fulfilled their destiny
And each speaks with reverence your blessed name
So we might look into their hearts and see what we can see
And still they are just a part of you
And it’s you that I really need
So I throw myself down at the gates of eternity
Could that be all I need to find the grace to be with you
My life, my prayer, all that time I spent
In my desperate hope to find some way
for your love to be with me and
ask, to beg and finally set me free.
