In Memory of Grace

Something Stronger
©2011 Gibbens/Weston


These
When the moment came
Recalled the name
And let no passion let them down.
They claimed the crown,
To Zion town
You’ll have to go to meet them.

So don’t be afraid of them, no,
That can take the body but not the soul.
Don’t be afraid of them now.
Love is something stronger
Than the crowd.
Yes, love is something stronger.

Time
And again you feel
Money is unreal
As it goes slipping past your palms.
When you’re in these arms
Those bad-luck charms
Won’t get to do you any harm.

So don’t be afraid of them, no,
That can take your body but not your soul.
Don’t be afraid of them now.
Love is something stronger
Than the proud.
Yes, love is something stronger.

Each morning you wake up
One more day in debt.
On the high bridge you’re thinking
It’s worse than it can get.
On your heart there’s a signboard
Saying, This Space To let.

High
On the stony hill
He’s fallen still
As the sky grows dark and chill.
They heard him cry
Eli Eli
Lama sabachthani before he died.

So don’t be afraid of them, no,
That can take your body but not your soul.
Don’t be afraid of them now.
Love is something stronger.
Love is something stronger.
