lyrics

Deep Joy

You keep holding me, you keep helping me
Gently calling me back
From this edge that you always seem to find me dancing on
Dreaming for me, whispering to me
Trying to keep me on track toward this light we both see before it’s gone.

(Ch) Will you always believe in me?
Is there nothing I can do to shake your faith?
There’s this guilt that maybe I’m leading you on
But then there’s this deep joy that you keep wanting me to stay.

Here in the dark of night, just before daybreak
I awake from this dream where everything we have is gone.
I turn and pull you close to me, wondering what it will take
To ease these doubts and fears that want to rule my mind all alone.

(Ch) Will you always believe in me?
Is there nothing I can do to shake your faith?
There’s this fear that maybe you’re leading me on
But then there’s this deep joy that you keep wanting me to stay.

(Br) Woman…Oh woman…
I want so much to give you everything you need.
Woman…Oh woman…
I’m so afraid that loving you means losing me.

You offer me your hand, your love, I strongly cling to them
I’m a thirsty drowning soul adrift in this great lake of time.
I offer you my hand, my love, it’s now I choose to swim.
I feel a smile cross your face ‘cause you know just what we will find.

(Ch) Will you always believe in me?
Is there nothing I can do to shake your faith?
There’s this fear that maybe we’re leading us on
But then there’s this deep joy that you keep wanting me to stay.
That you keep wanting me to stay…
You make me so happy, that you keep wanting me to stay.

Roger Hornsby with Karen Sifton Atlanta, Georgia

It was decided in early 2015 to record a number of Roger’s most recent original songs. Gareth Asher and his talented lady, Madison Laughridge, are featured on several songs. The album has become known as The Only Dream and touches on the doubts, hopes, the fears and the Love that this being in a body brings.
