Ever with Me

(Damh the Bard)

I wrote this song for Cerri, who was with me when I went through a very difficult stage in my life. As I wrote the words, and sang the final song through, I realised once more the importance of faith – faith in love and in friendship, to see us though those difficult times.

Sailing miles on an endless sea,
The shoulders of the ocean carry me.
A sign of land, a haven shore,
My sails catch the wind and I’m home once more.
A tired sailor coming home from war.
I can ride the storm because I know that…

Chorus
She is ever with me, ever with me,
The way that the Sun shines,
She is ever with me, ever with me,
The way that the Sun shines, ever with me.

She was there through the darkest times,
When the sunlight didn’t seem to shine,
Took my hand and she led me through,
The maze I had fallen in to,
And in the centre I stand with you.
I feel alive again, because I know that….

Now I watch the sands of time,
Slip through my fingers as it passes by,
In this life I can call my own,
For I know that I am not alone,
She will find me a lead me home.
And through the passing years I know that…
