FAULT LINES... THE TOM PETTY/SAMARITAN WOMAN PRAYER
LUKE SITAL-SINGH - THE FIRE INSIDE

PORTIMAO SUNSET (Put Your Hand In Mine)

Ferragudo

Fishermen working on the quay

As the birds claim their boats

The nightshift heading out to sea

To drop their night time floats

The gulls around the trawler

Don’t care where from or to

Just the feast of what’s on deck

And so with me and you

Put your hand in mine

In the sunset over Portimao

We’ll forget about the world

Love in the here and now

 

Hold each other over fault lines

Forgive our foibles and quirks

Soothe our souls’ tender bruises

Tolerate what sends us berserk

In a poppy field you shot an arrow 

Straight to the very heart of me

Now I love you as I love myself

You are now the vital part of me.

 

Walk with me by the Arade river

Gaze across its surface so still

Let God lead us by quiet waters

And hone our strength of will

Leave behind all the voices

All the demanding and comparing

In a summer sorbet sabbatical

To sense our souls repairing.

Beautiful in this evening light

Just lean in for a kiss

Life in all its fulness

Oh how good a life this is.
