From the recording Tall Tree

A song about leaving behind an old life and running to a new life and the loving arms of God. A thirteen year stint in an abusive marriage taught me to run back to God-the true lover of our souls. As I began to understand His nature and essence, and His true love for me, I also began to understand how to love others. I needed to always take care to love a person as God loves me, and to ask that person to love me the same way. I not meant to be in the situation I had found myself in. What the world expects of us is far from what God expects from us. His expectations are easy and light. "For I know the plans I have for you," says the Lord. "Plans to prosper you spiritually, never to harm you. To give you hope and a future."

Lyrics

It's thirty some miles from Magdalena across the San Augustin.
Thirty some miles of riding and dreaming, thirty miles 'til I get to you.
A star filled sky lights my way to a lover's embrace
Warm winds blow the fear away and dry the tears from my face.

It's thirty some miles of wide open riding 'til I get to the other side
My heart is charging into the gale and I'm staying on the whole ride
I know I said I'd never love again while I was wishing on a falling star
And the whole world changed when you called my name and took me in your arms.

It's thirty some miles from Magdalena across the San Augustine
Thirty some miles of riding and dreaming thirty miles 'til I get to you.
Your gentle voice is calling me to a lover's embrace
Warm winds blow the fear away and dry the tears on my face

Don't look back, don't ever look back, leave that devil to his ways.
He's begging and pleading and rattling his bones 'cuz he knows he's lost this race
That west wind's blowing his voice away and I don't care what people say
My heart is charging into the gale and I'm staying on the whole way.

It's thirty some miles from Magdalena across the San Augustine
Thirty some miles of riding and dreaming, thirty miles 'til get to you
