Words of Others | The World You Showed Me

Usually this is a Monday feature, but I didn't do one this Monday. I was listening to Strike Anywhere's Iron Front album yesterday, and heard a song I'd been wanting to share some of the lyrics from. The song is First Will and Testament, and it's a good one for anyone who's lost someone important from their life:

Beyond time and place

In your footstep's trace

When we close our eyes

And we see your face

Beyond the days

Your art and voice are missed

Beyond sentiment

Every word is bond

Beyond memory

When these days are gone

I'll carry you in my heart and soul and fist

I promise now

Through the days

Every smile's memorial

Every time

We raise a glass to your name

It's your energy flows through me

I promise you

I will walk

With my heart still open

Courage spoken loud
