Drove down to the beach at night, got scared on the way,
Just to hear the rhythm of the waves.
The ocean before me sighs and rolls on again,
Watch my footprints be erased.

Keep my bible always by my bedside,
as if just it lying there will save me when I die,
or give me sight when I am blind or in two minds.

A tall house on the hill behind,
unknown it became a guide that kept my body safe.
The beam of my headlights, I’m driving again,
just to hear the gentle words you say.

“Keep your mind and thinking on your best side,
leave those lustful, lying days a million miles behind,
And you will find that in good time all fears subside”.
