Ribbon Road lyrics


Some Breaking, Some True

I'm watching, I hear
I listen and see
Big hearts are talking to me
It's a church, it's a hall
It's a place for them all
And I know it's a good place to be

They tell of the past
And the growing, the years
That settle on faces that care
These women of life
Take the dark and the light
They empty me out when I'm there

Chorus
So roll out the barrel
And bang on the drum
There's hope for tomorrow
If today ever comes
And I could cry now
For the things they've been through
Families like trees
Some breaking, some true

I know they don't say it
Some times have been hard
They pass it off, laugh it away
What use is a hard word
When kindness will do
And love will chase shadows away

They don't suffer gladly
They don't suffer fools
They're strong when they stand unafraid
These women of living
With spark in their eyes
The strength to their arm
And their days

Chorus

And I could cry now
For the things they've been through
Families like trees
Some breaking, some true
