Nothing Quite So Gentle

lyrics

If you're one step from the grave
how will you know just what to say
how will you tell the tricks that time will play

If you are two steps from your life
how will you ever recognize
all of those crucial things that keep you alive

And the lighthouse at the end of the road
still shines for you
still shines for you
And the waves keep crashing into the rocks
but I'll make do
yeah, I'll make do
'cause I believe that they're still gentler
than you are

If you are three steps from your heart
how can you tell right and wrong apart
is there a rule to go by if you're unsure

And the lighthouse at the end of the road
still shines for you
still shines for you
And the waves keep crashing into the rocks
but I'll make do
yeah, I'll make do
'cause I believe that they're still gentler
than you are

If you are four steps from your skin
how will you know what's down within
down in that hollow shape that bears your name

And the lighthouse at the end of the road
still shines for you
still shines for you
And the waves keep crashing into the rocks
but I'll make do
yeah, I'll make do
'cause there is nothing quite so gentle
as you are

She is a veteran performer with 6 original full length albums as well as numerous EPs, singles and tours behind her. ... more
