This song was inspired by my parents Wes Gibson and Marilyn Gibson and first sung to them on their wedding anniversary in 1997. I love you mom and dad.
I took your hand and I’d take it again
A thousand times to feel the same,
Way I felt the day I promised you … as you put your hand in mine,
How’d we’d always stay together … how our love would fill the sky.
Some live long and still regret
Never seeing what you get
When your life has been surrendered … to a nighttime full of stars.
And the path at which we follow … connects every single one.
God spent a million … on a set of wings.
They brought us this far … and they’ll keep on going.
And all you want is … right here and now.
Drink not the water … when the wine is pouring out … for you.
Enough of me has wasted time
Wondering if I’ll ever find …
Words to give my thoughts a purpose
Days to make it worth the nights
Ground to stand upon my courage
A view to wake my tired eyes
And so tomorrow’s here again
A maiden trail that never ends
All the lessons that life’s taught us … are the two world’s greatest gifts
Be the love that here surrounds us … be the trust we’ve built within … (to Chorus)
Written by B.W. Gibson (Brian Gibson) for his parents
