Monday Music – Classic Mark Heard

Melancholy, mandolin and Mark Heard.

Great lyrics but those in bold below have haunted and pierced me for years.

Look over your shoulder and tell me what’s coming
Tell me, what is the bogey that you’re so afraid of?
The eyes in the back of our heads can persuade

That just for the moment mercy has swayed

Look over your shoulder and tell me what’s coming

Look into your sad eyes and tell me what you see

What is left of the child who is hiding behind them?

Who longs to be laughing in places of light

Who knows that the morning will follow the night?

Look into your sad eyes and tell me what you see

If you must be afraid be afraid of yourself

For being afraid of the fear you have felt
You will weather well in a climate of love

It takes more than your passion and more than your pain

For the rock of forgiveness to melt in the rain
Look over your shoulder and tell me what’s coming
Look into your sad eyes and tell me what you see
Look over your shoulder and tell me what’s coming
