Sanctuary – with m4a file

More progress on Sanctuary. I recorded myself singing it – no music – so you understand the melody. Needs a much stronger singer because the song is not supposed to sound so wimpy :). Still working in the music and additional lyrics.

Sanctuary

I’ll be your Sanctuary –
respite from battle cries.
Just lay your weapons at my feet
and you may close your eyes.
I’ll keep you safe behind my shield
until the klaxon sound
commands us Wake and gather arms –
return to battleground.

You are my Sanctuary –
all fears I shall discard.
My burden borne on shoulders strong,
to you I yield my guard.
You hold me close and raise my breath
and soul above the sea
until again the world collapses,
ending our reprieve.

There is no Sanctuary –
when here remains just one.
I fight alone in fields of fire,
assailed by sword and gun.
Without you here to take my hand
and bring a moment’s peace,
I fight a never-ending battle –
War that cannot cease.

About oodajunkie's words distract

Don’t bother me – I’m busy cultivating my Tortured Genius persona.
