light of life

Was never going to be a mother, had a bigger and better plan
I loved your father, but he’s a troubled soul so forgive him if you can

Wasn’t raising you with cocaine on the table and roaches in ashtrays

Held you in my arms as the smoke cleared and was able to see through the haze

it’s the light that takes me over

it’s the light that sets me free

it’s the light of life that’s inside of me

I left to make a better life for us, I did the best that I could do

He left, we never saw him again, I was too good for him, so are you

Got the job, ‘cause I got the degree, got the support of my family

Going to show everyone all I need is you and all you need is me

it’s the light that takes me over

it’s the light that sets me free

it’s the light of life that’s inside of me

I have a secret, you are the best mistake I ever made

You are much stronger and more beautiful than any plans I could’ve laid

You grew into such a smart and funny child, and precocious as they come

I know I was often tough on you, it’s me you needed to escape from

And you went away and saw hard times too but you succeeded in the end

Your are my pride and joy, you are my heart and soul, and now you are my friend

it’s the light that takes me over

it’s the light that sets me free

it’s the light of life that’s inside of me

You’re the light of life that shines inside of me

  1. Co-writer, Steve Shabala, sent me a video of a rehearsal last week. Look forward to being able to add video of the finished product. Amazing experience… to hear your words being sung. Maybe one day I will turn on the radio and hear one of our songs. What a dream come true that would be! JRD 09/08/2010
