lyrics

Redemption

He walked in from the desert, he never said a word
He'd been wandering in the wilderness, alone, unloved, unheard

They'd been in love, had a child, made a home
but she was too young, he was too wild, now they're alone

She performs for strangers, behind a glass all on her own
Does exactly what she's told to by the voices on the phone
Dreaming of a family in a dusty mobile home
Sleepwalking through the present, her mind replaying all she's known

They'd been in love, they'd had a child, they'd made a home
but she was too young, he was too wild, now they're alone
He left it all, found a place with no language, no road
Wanted his heart, wanted his soul and his whole being to corrode
Blasted by sand, part of the land, weathered and broken down to dust
He'd lost it all, seen his world fall, all because he'd never learned how to trust.

He needed redemption, to fix what he'd destroyed
No illusions of forgiveness - just a future for the woman and the boy
As he left, his mind remembered those family days out on the beach
They're gone and way too broken, forever taken from his reach ...
