Narrow Daylight

I heard this song for the first time today in a few months and remembered how much it speaks to me.  The truth is that I am stronger than I believe. No matter how sad I am now, there was a time earlier in my life that was so much harder and I believe (and pray!) that the tears and sadness will never fall that heavily again.

DIANA KRALL – NARROW DAYLIGHT

Narrow daylight entered my room
Shining hours were brief
Winter is over
Summer is near
Are we stronger than we believe?

I walked through halls of reputation
Among the infamous too
As the camera clings to the common thread
Beyond all vanity
Into a gaze to shoot you through

Is the kindness we count upon
Hidden in everyone?

I stepped out in a sunlit groove
Although deep down I wished it would rain
Washing away all the sadness and tears
That will never fall so heavily again

Is the kindness we count upon
Hidden in everyone

I stood there in the salt spray air
Felt the wind sweeping over my face
Ran up through the rocks to the old
wooden cross
It’s a place where I can find some peace

Narrow daylight entered my room
Shining hours were brief
Winter is over
Summer is near
Are we stronger than we believe?
