First Light

Day by day the spirit takes you
Hour by hour the journey makes you
Step by step a walk to freedom
Neck and neck a race for life

Ties that bind will never let you go
Ties that bind will never let you go

Making time, the big adventure
Line by line you let it out
Word by word you speak forgiveness
Breathing in the here and now

Life
It’s buried in the sunlight
Living all around you
The die has not been cast
First light
The future’s for the taking
The path remains unbroken
This day is not your last
This day is not your last

Casting out the empty vessels
Of all the yesterdays that left you torn
Breaking out and tasting freedom
And leave behind the dark that brought the dawn
