Expression Of Faith

Play

I have walked on the high wire
With no net to catch me
I have stood in the spotlight
Where each flaw could be seen
And I've anteed my faith
To the mercy of strangers
'Cause when you ride on the big ride
You don't ride for free

If we're only brief candles
Let's burn for a day
If we're only poor players
Let's rush to the stage
And if we don't know the ending
Let's begin anyway
It starts in your heart
An expression of faith
It starts in your heart
An expression of faith

Though the north wind is freezing
And the thunderclouds gather
Still we scatter the new seed
And we trust in the sun
Though this world is uncertain
We deliver our children
To life's great adventure
And the promise of love

If we're only brief candles
Let's burn for a day
If we're only poor players
Let's rush to the stage
And if we don't know the ending
Let's begin anyway
It starts in your heart
An expression of faith
It starts in your heart
An expression of faith

Some call it wisdom
And some call it pain
To find out the truth
To discover it's name
But when all that we know
Doesn't change anything
Expressions of faith
Are all that remain

If we're only brief candles
Let's burn for a day
If we're only poor players
Let's rush to the stage
And if we don't know the ending
Let's begin anyway
It starts in your heart
An expression of faith
It starts in your heart
An expression of faith
