lyrics

Lift
By Andrea Menard, Robert Walsh, 2012
For Gordon Tootoosis

We’re just passing through, he said,
We’re all just passing through
No need to get all worked up, girl
‘Cause I’ll see you on the other side someday soon
But for now, you gotta feel what you’re feeling
Let the tears cloud your eyes
Yes I’m leaving this world behind.
But when I do, I’m not leaving you.

Let me, Lift, the weight off your shoulders
Lift, the veil from your eyes, Shift, to a brand new perspective
Lift, you higher, where you can see for miles and miles and miles

I rest my head in a field of grass
beneath Poundmaker’s sky
Its been years since you’ve been gone
I’m lying here, I’m trying here, to say goodbye
But right now, I gotta feel what I’m feeling
I can’t let you go, are you there,
Can you find a way to let me know
I beg of you, to pull me through

Help me Lift, the weight off my shoulders
Lift, the veil from my eyes, Shift, to a brand new perspective
Lift me higher, where I can see for miles and miles and miles

Wait a minute.. Did I just hear your voice in the wind
Just a minute…Did I just see your face in a cloud
I rub my eyes, It disappears, But I see clearly now

Lift, the weight off my shoulders
Lift, the veil from my eyes, Shift, to a brand new perspective
Lift me higher,
Lift, the weight off my shoulders
Lift, the veil from my eyes, Shift, to a brand new perspective
Lift, me higher,
Where I can see for miles and miles and miles, I can see for miles and miles and miles
