Being Here

Written 1992

Verse 1:
on a day this bleak when the sun turns red
it seems the peace I seek won't come until I'm dead
on the battleground of life only the fools survive

Verse 2:
I am tired of being tired my body aches for what I love
of all that I've desired it doesn't seem enough
on the battle ground of love I surrender with you

Refrain:
all that I have left is being here
is being here with you

Verse 3:
I gave away my power hand over fist
with each passing hour add someone to the list
on the battle ground of work I gave it all away

Refrain.

all I'll ever need is being here
is being here with you
