The Offering
music by Gary Marks, lyrics by Gary Marks
ASCAP © 1985

On a wind that flies across the time,
I have fallen in your arms again.
But you warn me not to trust the heart,
or people and their promises.
Knowing all these things are true
I still want to be with you.

Across the sky a distant song today,
a call of wonder or a bird of prey.
Now we will run from love and all it brings.
Or come to trust the song it sings.
Come to trust the song it sings.

You tell me things will end the same
and we will have to say goodbye.
And we must be careful of the pain
like falling through an open sky.

Touch me now and whisper low,
just one kiss will lead the way.

Across the sky a distant song today,
a call of wonder or a bird of prey.
Now we will run from life and all it brings.
Or come to trust the song it sings.
Come to trust the offering.

Across the sky a distant song today,
a call of wonder or a bird of prey.
We hide away from love and life it seems,
or come to trust the offering.
Or come to trust the offering.
