lyrics

Mr Damascus

He came from a far away place
He shone his light on my face
I thought that I had gone blind
But it was all in my mind

Well I was sitting where he left me
And I was trying to see where I went wrong
Because he shone a light into my soul
and then he said
Let me sing you a different song
He said

See the way the flowers grow
They don't tell of what they don't know
Birds of the air are so free
They never lie
They know how to be so

Walk in Truth and walk in Light,
If you open your eyes I'm gonna give you sight

I thought about this, I tried to resist
But I came to the conclusion that he's right
'Cause all through time and in my mind
I see us running around blind in the night
And we play our games 'cause we've got our aims
And we don't mind shooting down the truth in flames

But Love is like a thunder crash
Love is like a burning flash
Love makes us see a different way

Walk in Truth, walk in Light
You know the wrong from right
Open eyes will give you sight
Even in the darkest night

Only people wear faces
Try to cover their traces
Listen to the birds sing
They don't worry about a thing
They just fly

So I guess Mr Damascus is on his way
But I still got that Light shining in my soul today
And even though sometimes I feel the pain
When I look around somehow my world is brighter

Because I see the way the flowers grow
They don't tell of what they don't know
Birds of the air are so free
They never lie
They know how to be so

Walk in Truth and walk in Light,
If you open your eyes I'm gonna give you sight
Walk in Truth and walk in Light,
If you open your eyes I'm gonna give you sight

I'm gonna give you sight
I'm gonna give you sight
I'm gonna give you sight
