lyrics

Alive in Death Valley

Verse 1
One morning I woke up with shortness of breath
Clawed at the air, felt so close to death
I heard a small voice from so long ago
Know who you are, follow your road

Chorus
Alive in death valley
Among the dry bones
The wind hums her lullaby
My child welcome home

Verse 2
Don’t leave cried my mother, you can’t do without
It’s barren and dry, you’ll starve in the drought
I’ll worry about you in the dark night
You’ll come back tomorrow, you’ll see we were right

Chorus x2
Alive in death valley
Among the dry bones
The wind hums her lullaby
My child welcome home
Far away from the aching need to survive
I’m no longer afraid to walk by my side

Verse 3
Alone in death valley, I feel a relief
The sky opens up, my heart slows it’s beat
Stay here my sweet child
No more searching the plains
There’s a well-spring beneath you
And it runs through your veins

Last chorus
I thrive in death valley
No longer I roam
Peace comes when I sleep
Alone I am home
Far away from the aching need to survive
I’m no longer afraid to walk by my side
I’m no longer afraid to walk by my side
