About watching my mother on her deathbed and the mystery of life.

lyrics

Stranger Still
©2016 Alice Bierhorst

Lost again
I find myself around the bend
And if this is the end
It gets stranger still

Come again
I’d like to know you as a friend
Must every scale descend
And grow stranger still

STRANGER STILL
IF YOU WILL
NOW I THRILL TO YOUR VOICE
STRANGER STILL
IF YOU WILL
SHOW ME HOW TO REJOICE

Quiet pool
I see the image of a fool
Composed of kind and cruel
It gets stranger still

When I rise
I hear the language of the skies
A solitude of sighs
It grows stranger still

STRANGER STILL
IF YOU WILL
NOW I THRILL TO YOUR VOICE
STRANGER STILL
IF YOU WILL
SHOW ME HOW TO REJOICE
STRANGER STILL
IF YOU WILL
I HEAR YOU CALL MY NAME
STRANGER STILL
IF YOU WILL
ARE WE ONE AND THE SAME?

Breathe in, breathe out
Past fear, past doubt
Climbing the mountain
You’re not alone

STRANGER STILL
IF YOU WILL
NOW I THRILL TO YOUR VOICE
STRANGER STILL
IF YOU WILL
SHOW ME HOW TO REJOICE
STRANGER STILL
IF YOU WILL
I HEAR YOU CALL MY NAME
STRANGER STILL
IF YOU WILL
WE ARE THE SAME, WE ARE THE SAME
