about

Dedicated to my niece, Hazel St. Louis, whose life will be full of love and light.

lyrics

well you were born
with a coat on your lungs
for half an hour
you couldn't breathe

at five years old
you were an angel
when you laughed
but when you looked at me
you cried

when you grow old
people will say all kinds of things
but this I know
find the ones who truly love you
and hold them close
because their heart's your home

and the bright white lines
in the cold black night
are guiding me far from my home
don't you know that we all live forever
it's just we won't breathe anymore

and someday soon
you'll fall in love
and start a family of your own

and some will say
that you're lucky to be alive
and I guess that's true
in a way

but I'd say
that you're lucky to be loved
and that's the truth
the gospel truth

and in the same way
we're the lucky ones
to have been blessed with you
we're the lucky ones
because love without life
is better than life without love
and I think that saved you
and it might just save us all

and the bright white lines
in the cold black night
are guiding me far from my home
don't you know that we all live forever
it's just we won't breathe anymore

and the bright white lines
in the cold black night
are guiding me far from my home
don't you know that we all live forever
so you'll never be alone
