Salvation Song

all that gold within your hands
turns to dust as time commands
rivers fill and flow
by the moon’s silver glow
all the love that’s in your heart
gently breaks then falls apart
wildflowers bloom
near a cold marble tomb
when you look up at dark endless skies
searching the heavens with hope in your eyes
faithful and strong
it won’t be long
til you hear that salvation song
all the dreams you hold so dear
watch them as they disappear
way out of sight
into a deep unkind night
all the fears that call your name
tempt your soul and bring you shame
they don’t mean a thing
church bells still ring
as you glide through that crystal blue sea
riding waves so careless and free
praying you’re wrong
it won’t be long
til you hear that salvation song
they’ll be playing that salvation song
