Orphaned by Circumstance
© 2014 Bruce Matthews, Painted Trillium Music
Look behind back down that road
Feels like a long time, long time.
Spent some time bein’ alone.
Takin’ a hard line, hard line.
Blackened face in a minstrel show
Face was all mine, all mine.
Learn how much I didn’t know
I was so blind, so blind, and drifting….
Don’t have to do this on my own
Orphaned by circumstance, circumstance.
Not condemned by seeds I’ve sewn
Doin’ the devil’s dance, strange dance.
Think there’s no place to belong
Hypnotic trance, lost in a trance.
I’m not broken and alone
Condemned without a chance,
no chance, for mercy….
He’s been up that hill before
His blood now covers me, all of me
Not a sinner anymore
I’m graced in all I see—and I can see!
Calls my name and steps ashore
Breakfast at Gallilee
Owns my heart forever more
Reborn in liberty, and I’m free, I’m free.
