Beth Rowley “I Walk Beside You”

I walk beside you
Where the streets have no name
Fast asleep or awake
My heart beats
Just to say
I walk beside you

Know well of your sorrows
The woes that betide you
Of pains that inflame to irately remind you
Tomorrows begged and borrowed
And the hollow eyes that chide you
Know well
I walk beside you
All the way
In a way
I’m deep inside you
I’m the light
That shines to guide you
I’m the sight
Your eyes recline to
In the shade
With heart brave
I walk beside you
It’s okay to fall
I’ll rise you
With the grace
My faith supplies you
As thine reins

I walk beside you
Where the streets have no name
Fast asleep or awake
My heart beats
Just to say
I walk beside you
Where the candelabra strains
To entertain the vile decay
For every bleed
That leaves my veins
I walk beside you

It’s okay
To let go
In the name of remain
Either way
When it rains
I walk beside you
When the late night train
Is running shamefully late
I’ll keep you dry
While you wait
Be my delight to
When it comes time to bid adieu
Confide that life begins anew
Each time the skies are given due
Nowise denied you
I walk beside you
To reprise the flight of Daedalus
While daylight prides the change in us
Inviting dead of night
To come and play with us
Dangerous liaisons
Merely daisy chains to graze on
As we get our finest blaze on
Raise the flame in us
With the grace
My faith supplies you
As thine reins
Not a charlatan or knave
Be taking aim at us

I walk beside you
Where the streets have no name
Fast asleep or awake
My heart beats
Just to say
I walk beside you
Where the candelabra strains
To entertain the vile decay
For every bleed
That leaves my veins
I walk beside you
Where our dreams pave the way
Through the trees
All the way
To the sweetest refrain
I walk beside you
