'Come Down' CD Lyrics

COME DOWN 
Music & Lyrics by Ginger Doss
copyright 1999 Glass Umbrella Music/ASCAP



I am listening, I'm listening for you
I want to hear you speak to me
I bare my body between fire and sky
and wake my spirit now to rise

I am here, and more than I am
Have I been all that I can be
Am I you
I want you to show me
I want to be more than I ever dreamed

I stretch my arms across the sky
Can you hear me call your name
I think it's time we walk together
Come to me, I'm not afraid

(chorus)
Come down, come down
Come down off of the mountain
when you hear the words are spoken
in your name
Come down, come down
and dance upon the earth
and for the moment
let the veil between us fade
Come down

I am here, so borne of the earth
and wind from heaven did complete me
Bring to me a handful of stardust
that I can cast into the darkest night

And with your touch my heart unfolds
and blooms within a rose of love
And down my spine the golden vine
will stretch my roots into the earth

(repeat chorus)

 BLESSED BE
Music & Lyrics by Lynda Millard
copyright 1999 Glass Umbrella Music/ASCAP


Your interpretations seem so cold
fear a loving God
I have been
told so many times
Thank God I can read
between the lines

In your hallowed halls
I learned your word
'it's the only way'
my spirit heard this different song
It's all right, no
one is wrong

But you're telling me I cannot learn
and don't ask why the witches burned
and surely Pan's the devil
those with horns are not of God
how odd
You're telling me the Goddess tales
must all be lies, for God is male
somewhere down the line
the role of Mother became odd
some of what you have been taught
you wouldn't believe
how much I believe in
Blessed Be

You prefer to keep me in a box
with someone you call satan
well, I don't have his mark
If you don't believe I'm of the light, friend
you're in the dark
I will pray my prayers
the way I please
don't try so hard to save me
just keep your beliefs
and I'll keep mine
that is my religious right
out there

Telling me I cannot learn
and don't ask why the witches burned
and surely Pan's the devil
those with horns are not of God
My god
You're telling me the Goddess tales
must all be lies, for God is male
somewhere down the line
the role of Mother became odd
and you judge me just as hard
when I love
and you don't love me,
but Blessed Be
anyway
