Everybody do yourselves a favor and buy anything and everything by Sandra McCracken. She's the real deal.


Age After Age

On the edge of the river,
the mighty Mississippi
two boys spent their summer
on the banks by the levy
When the waters broke and burst the dam
they were swallowed in a wave of sand
They pulled the younger one out by the hand...
standing on his brother`s shoulders

One nation under God,
young and proud She stumbled
with a trail of tears,
left by those who were outnumbered
She said, "This land is your land, this land is mine,
Unless you are an Indian"
But a higher ground we have tried to find
Standing on their shoulders.

Age after age, of heros and soldiers
it gives me sight and makes me brave
Standing on their shoulders.

One man in the shadows
of the white-washed cathedrals
he tried to pull the system
through the eye of the needle
To his conscience bound he would not recant
for the freedom of the Saints
and truth is truth is truth
and we are standing on his shoulders...

Age after age, of heros and soldiers
it gives me sight and makes me brave
Standing on their shoulders.

To the ones left behind
who are picking up the pieces
of planes, bombs, and buildings,
of innocence and evil
`Cause when the news and noise and flowers die,
and you still sleep alone
There is a God who knows every tear you cry
and this world is on his shoulders

Age after age, of heros and soldiers
Why am I so slow to change
when I am standing on their shoulders?
Age after age, of heros and soldiers
God, give me sight and make me brave
as I stand upon their shoulders.
