I recorded this in GR using my Taylor 12-string, Shalloch djembe, Pork-pie snare, viola, tambourine, Yamaha orchestral bells and Casio Privia PX-300. Video was shot on a flip hd camera.
Love isn't love unless you give it away.
Joy isn't joy unless it's joy amidst pain.
Peace isn't peace unless it's peace in the storm.
Light isn't light unless that light keeps you warm.
I am not Yours but that You make me Thine.
I have no use but that You pour out my wine.
I know I have nothing that You did not give.
And I know that I am dying unless You make me live.
Yours is the glory!
I'm broken and tired.
And I know I can't go on.
