Hold Out

Jun 23, 2013

Never been south of Ciudad Acuña
Never laid eye on an ocean
He's seen the blood of Christ Mountains 
Just a day's drive away
And considered these things
In their afternoon rains

It's not what a man's done but it's what he would do
Just a line he picked from an old poet
And it gives him some hope
As he passes his days
Living and dying
On the Gulf Coastal Plains

Hold out
Won't you hold out your love
Take it back victorious
Peace on earth
Such a strange delight
Feel the weight of eternity 
Calling behind the night

It's not carpe diem by experience new
Ἐν ἀρχῇ ἦν ὁ λόγος are the words that ring true
And they're building a hope 
As he passes his days
Living and dying
On the Gulf Coastal Plains

Hold out
Won't you hold out your love
Draw it back victorious
Peace on earth
Such a strange delight
Feel the weight of eternity 
Calling behind the night
