Lyrics

Corner of the World

Judas from the redbud and Jesus on the hill
Now I hear that dogwoods don't grow the same way
She kept a picture of him framed in the kitchen by the door
So she could see faith on the wall right where he hanged
Forever battle ready from the alter to the ground
I guess the only honest enemy is time
Thinking on it now I wish I'd told her then
If you can't walk on the water drink the wine

And find a corner of the world that makes you happy
Find a corner of the world to call your own
Don't give up all your light in the shadows of the fight
And wind up in the dark and all alone

Most of my whole life I've been told the end in nigh
And there ain't much more than pray that we can do
Some signed up to fight while others worked the farm
The they shipped off to Japan in '42
There will come a day they say when every mother's son
Will have to pick a side and steady off to war
If he returns he'll know the truth only flags and faces change
And sing the same song that his father sang before

So find a corner of the world that makes you happy
Find a corner of the world to call your own
Don't give up all your light in the shadows of the fight
And wind up in the dark and all alone
To your corner of the world take your lover
Someone who can feel your very soul
Wrap up both yourselves in one another
Find a corner of the world to make your home
Find a corner of the world to make your home

The sky's been falling all this time
Cry heralds of demise
Fall into each other's arms
And trust the sun will also rise

Find a corner of the world that makes you happy
Find a corner of the world to call your own
Don't give up all your light in the shadows of the fight
And wind up in the dark and all alone
To your corner of the world take your lover
Someone who can feel your very soul
Wrap up both yourselves in one another
Find a corner of the world to make your home
Find a corner of the world to make your home
