By Song Writer Susan Ashton
It’s hard to tell just when the night becomes the day
That golden moment when the darkness rolls away
But there is a moment none the less.
In the regions of the heart there is a place
A sacred charter that should not be erased
It is the marrow; the moral core that I cannot ignore.
Within the scheme of things
Well I know where I stand
My convictions they define who I am
Some move the boundaries at any cost
But there is a line, I will not cross
No riding on the fence – no alibis
No building on the sands of compromise
I won’t be borrowed and I can’t be bought
There is a line, I will not cross.
Ask the ocean where the water meets the land
He will tell you it depends on where you stand
And you’re neither right or wrong.
But in the fathoms of the soul that won’t ring true
Cause truth is more than an imposing point of view
It rises above the changing tide
As sure as the morning sky.
