09. Babel Towers

Sarah Brendel
by Sarah Brendel


I stood accused and guilty of many crimes
I went and burned my offerings a thousand times
I know the place the landscape been here before
I will not walk the bad mile anymore
‘Cause I have seen the sun that I shine
Comes down like pouring waters
And two wrongs will never make a right

Many times what we’re believing
Is bound to change just like the season
We’re blind eyed of short side
Mistake the darkest night for the light of day

So if tonight I’m leaving and finally let go
Maybe you’ll find a freedom you’ve never known
You’re pushed into the twilight against your will
And for a timeless second you’re heart stands still
But cutting through the veil of despair
A gentle wind is blowing breathing life on weary bones in chains

Many times what we’re believing
Is bound to change just like the season
We’re blind eyed of short side
We know not wrong from what’s right

And as we sink into the mystery of what we are
And what we should be
We let go of our shadows and in the end we know
Our true face of pure grace a spirit fair and always
We will dance, we will fly
Everyone is so afraid to try
What if we would finally let go
Of all our babel towers
Only to find we’re all we need to be

Behind the Song:
'I wrote this about a close friend going through a very challenging time. He went through several difficult things right in a row. He was a musician and he lost his band, and then his wife left him for another man. He had to deal with lots of bad stuff, so this song serves as an encouragement to him and to the others who have gone through similar situations.' - Sarah Brendel
