My Burden Is Light

from Two Grains Of Sand by Piers Faccini





Lyrics :

I've been taken I’ve been enslaved
I've been captured i've been saved
Been out wandering traveling lost
My hands are shackled my heart is crossed

Sacred wine straight from the grape
A prisoner in love can never escape
My task is done my burden is light
The dawn will come for the end of the night

Joy joy
I'm out of luck
Joy joy
I give up

Together we'll wake up together we'll sleep
We've tied the knot this bond we'll keep
Turn the lock from the outside in
This wheel of fate can roll and spin

Captive soldier betrayed by love
Sees no bars he sees the stars above
A link and a tie and a lover's embrace
A paradise made touched by grace

Joy joy
I'm out of luck
Joy joy
I give up


from Two Grains Of Sand, released June 29, 2009

If my songs were maps I'd want them to stretch from the English moors to the Saharan dunes via the plains of the Mediterranean.
