For Bryan and Nathaniel

I’ve watched my friend swim the seven seas
 I’ve watched him grow
 I’ve watched him learn to believe
 Another young friend whose feet were on fire
 I’ve seen him change
 His wings take his soul higher and higher
 They’re brothers in arms
 Keeping the world spinning round
 Cover her fears, block out the unholy sounds

These were the words spoke unto me
 Like words of a prophet they let me be
 Free skies open to love a new world
 I’ll spend my love on you little girl

So little this world, my eyes have seen, open them up
 Take me everywhere you’re feet have been
 In another lifetime, I would know all I can, the fires that burned
 Have enraged a fight in this man
 His only hope is an unopened door, found somewhere in
 In a land touched by a virgin shore

These were the words spoke unto me
 Like words of a prophet they let me be
 Free skies open to love a new world
 I’ll spend my love on you little girl
