Promised Land

Come to me, my darling,

my grasp is soft and warm.

Take my hand and follow me,

I'll lead you from the swarm.

.

Lean on me, my sweetheart,

I know how tired you feel

in this time of war and wrath,

where reality is not real.

.

I'll sing to you, my dearest,

of places still unknown

with wondrous light and innocent life,

no seeds of destruction yet sown.

.

Confide in me, my beauty,

let me take some of the weight

of tales of woe and truths unknown;

you are too burdened with hate.

.

Rest your lungs, my precious,

for you are more weary than you know.

Stop your rushed breath, feel the calm;

it's time to just let go.

.

Come with me, my love,

it's time to start anew.

I'll take you to the Promised Land

where you can enjoy the view.
