macdonald michael – east of eden 歌詞


the world goes mad around us
while i stand by and watch you sleep
in the hope that harm won’t find us
i pray the lord our souls to keep
does he see us here
are we precious in his sight
or are we merely dust on this tiny ball
he hurled out into the night
somewhere east of eden.
from the first time that we stumble
we learn that nothing is -ssured
however hoplessly we tumble
it’s by the grace of god that we endure.
if there’s some better place
far from all that’s wrong
but if god in his wisdom
saw fit to put you here
then this is where i belong
somewhere east of eden.
maybe he laughs in our face
by way of the cold hard fact
that these moments framed in time and sp-ce
are the same ones nothing can bring back.
maybe we exist and wander through this world
just to lead each other home
from somewhere east of eden.
