Kat Eggleston: Music

Sanctuary (SPEAK)

(Kat Eggleston)
August, 2009

When you lay your head to rest

With no place to stand

When your kingdom is laid waste

By some careless hand

When your pillow is a stone

On a bed of sand

When you find yourself alone

In the stranger’s land

  When the voice that sounds most clear

  Is your enemy

  Hear this echoed, far and near;

  You are safe with me.

If you live at one dead run

On the shifting ground

Tensing for the starting gun

Deaf to softer sound

Day and night, something, someone

Seems to hunt you down

Hear my voice, take my hand

Stop, and turn around

  When you start this race again

  Take these words, for free

  My own, my true, my trusted friend,

  You are safe with me.
