Jeff Black – The Valley lyrics

As I walk down through the valley
I breathe in the angel mist
With nothing to protect me
From this place that the devil blessed
I walk with arms wide open
And I dream where the wild winds blow
Faith will give me shelter
And time my own reward

See my soul is alive
And these dreams are real
I will not let fear rule my life
Or how I feel inside my heart
All the rest of my days
On the wings of a dove
Carry me away

To the left I feel the joker
Tug and pull there at my coat
To the right I feel the thieves
Choke and dagger at my throat
Stumbling through the darkness
Like a drifter in the night
Shaking off the violence
Until the fall of the morning light

You see they put it in the papers
Around the world and on the air
They run it down the wire
Baby (until we're tired
And we just don't care
I know we can make it
We can make it if we try
We can rise above this mess
And fly in a clear blue sky

I know when the light falls on me
There ain't nothing I can't overthrow
There ain't nothing I can't overcome or come to know
So lay your heavy load down on me
Strip everything I have away
I am not your prisoner
I am not afraid
