words and music by Steve Slagg
bridge from Psalm 131


There was a minute
at the beginning of the year
When everybody
was alive
and everything was clear
I said I loved you
I think I said
That you were everything to me
I thought I meant it
But in hindsight it couldn’t be true

It’s been a long year

Let’s say he made it
Let’s just say
that this was all some crazy dream
I wouldn’t take it
and I know
that if he could, neither would he
You met me somewhere
and I know
that somewhere now he is with you
And that’s what matters
And that’s always been, always will be true

But Lord, it’s been a long year
It’s been a long, hard year without him
It’s been a long, hard year without You

For now I’m quiet
For now I’m still
I’m not too big
I’m like a child
For once I’m still
Oh, Israel

For just a minute
Before I’m finished with this song
When nobody else
is around
And you and me are alone
I’ll say I love you
I think I’ll say
That you are everything I see
I think I mean it
