David Wilcox – Words Alone lyrics

Words Alone
David Wilcox

When I'm afraid of dying ashamed
Of never doing what I'm here for.
I'm afraid being afraid
And wasting precious time.

I'm afraid growing so cold
And closing off the love inside me
I'm afraid of just getting old
And never getting wise

Here tonight a storm of another kind
Where's the light I have known
I have known
Your lightning strikes born of another time
Across these years you have shown
By your words alone
By your words alone
By your words alone

I don't even know how it starts
Too much fretting and forgetting.
Something switches off in my heart
And leaves me to my mind

So I'm reaching for your words in the dark
To bring you here to shine your wisdom
And all it takes is one sudden spark
To leave this fear behind


You blaze this sacred trail I find
