Written by Bri-anne Swan

Genesis / Bereishis Chapter 21

lyrics

Only room for one inside this town
He laid it on the line
Nothing but the sun to hide our tracks
We’ll take it as a sign

I’d do it all again for you
I’d say the words, I’d give it all, I’d bear the time

Water from despair, a tiny heel
Can mark where others kneel
The wild and the tame can’t walk the same
They barter different deals

I’d do it all again for you
I’d say the words, I’d give it all, I’d run the miles

Now a journey pressing lips against a stone
For a pharoah’s daughter in a land that’s not her own
This land is not my my home

Never room for two inside this vow
He laid it on the line
Raging at the way we sigh a name
It might as well start now

I’d do it all again for you
I’d say the words, I’d bear your bones
I’d do it all again for you
In this land that’s not my home
This land that’s not my home
This land is not my home
