By the Boab Tree-“Sing and I will hear you…


BY THE BOAB TREE – LYRICS:

Sing and I will hear you
No matter where you are
A song to light the darkest night
And guide me from afar

And I will never be alone
Now I know you’re somewhere
You’re everywhere to me
You’re the colour in the sky
A reason to believe
And when the rain falls down
You tell a story
And I will hear you
Always near you
By the boab tree

Lay your arms around me
Like the falling rain
Let the feeling drown me
And life begins again

And I will never be afraid
Now I know you’re somewhere
You’re everywhere to me
The warming of the sun upon
The earth beneath my feet
And when the rain falls down
You tell a story
And I will hear you
Always near you
By the boab tree

Oh you are somewhere
You’re everywhere to me
You’re the colour in the sky
And you’re the earth beneath my feet
And when the rain falls down
You tell a story
And I will hear you
Always near you
By the boab tree

    Hello, Grace. Thank you for your very kind comment on my blog. Of course I don’t mind the link. I consider it an honor.

    Oh, don’t you just love Baz? My very favorite director. Love the man’s vision and tilted view. It’s so nice to meet you.

    Hiya, Thanks for the comment on that crazy hair video. I don’t remember the name of the song but it was composed by Kevin Macleod of incompetech.com

    i love this song. I remember when i was young i sung this at my choir concert. I had the solo part and we sang it a little different. I do enjoy listening when i get the chance. I have a myriad of things to do. Love this song and hope to hear more about it.

    This song reminds me of a beautiful piece of music that they played on a late night phone chat line in Birmingham when I was a child, when people would call in to talk to a Reverend about their problems. Does anybody know what that music would be?
