Beth Nielsen Chapman Feathers, Bones and Shells Lyrics

Last updated: 02/08/2006 11:00:00 AM

The sound of my heart is ancient and true
And it sings like a thousand bells
for sorrow and grace, for my love of you
The Feathers, the Bones and the Shells

I try to believe wherever you are
There's a sky and a sea of blue
And someone you trust
Whose sheltering arms
Have finally comforted you

The touch of you hand still lives in my skin
Lile a shadow I can't embrace
Wherever it ends is where it begins
Without ever leaving a trace

So you live in me and I live in you
And the rest is for love to tell
That nothing escapes
The wind bloeing through
The Feathers, the Bones and the Shells
