Meridian Of Love

from Old Standbys by Joe Brownrigg

lyrics

Now the days are getting shorter
And our lives ain't getting longer
I recognize the burdens of our callings

Through your service and devotion
The years when you were broken
The time I got to know you before you died

And the world will keep on turning
If a piece of it goes missing
A piece of it has flown towards the sky

We don't know who we could turn to
If we must be without you
You never knew the last song you would write

You belong where you are now
You get and then you give, through the burdens of your time
You belong where you are now
The meridian of love in your sacrifice

All the creatures of creation
They all serve the greater purpose
And never even know the reasons why

All our bodies will return to
The place that we all came from
So the rhythm of the Earth can breathe new life

We all owe it to our futures
We all owe it to our families
We owe it to the rest of humankind

I can hear the sound of heartbeats
The ones that ain't been born yet
Just waitin' on the rhythm of your sacrifice

You belong where you are now
You get and then you give, through the burden of your time
You belong where you are now
The meridian of love in your sacrifice
