about

Additional verses yet to be written would have to include my wife Annemieke and my son Luke, to whom I dedicate this song.

Jeremiah, April 2014

lyrics

Last week I saw my uncle Bill
The loneliness that lives upon the hill
His younger brother Landon passed away

My grandfather I never knew
God-fearing man who would not suffer fools
His youngest son, the fool, died angry, in pain

I was with Landon at the end
He had so few breathes left, a heart to mend
He seemed a bitter broken soul, but I know

Chorus:
God was in his heart
And he turned to him day to day
And for all his faults
From God’s love never turned away

I’ve been like Landon all my life
No family of my own, no kids no wife
The loneliness lives on inside

The bitter anger on my tongue
“You never cared for me” since I was young
There’s never been a love for me

This is way I turn from Him
Justified in my hurt life seems so grim
But there’s one thing I truly know

God lives in my heart
And I’ll turn to Him day to day
And for all my faults
Not a soul does he turn away
