Lyrics – First Breath

Posted on April 1, 2010 by Emi

Lay these lessons at our feet and let us choose
Waiting in the background patiently
Just in case we needed you

Side by side your steady gravity grips us like stars
Not controlling, not abandoning
You’re the reason we are who we are

My first breath and all the rest you gave to me
Where I stand and all I am you gave to me

Over time our growing confidence moves us away
Deep foundations you laid down for us
Might be shaken but will never break

My first breath and all the rest you gave to me
Where I stand and all I am you gave to me

    I was thinking maybe it’s a wee bit busy, but the long tones of the cello have a great calming effect almost like that of an understanding parent calming a worried child.

    Great job as always and you’ll make awesome parents someday :-)

    Love this song. It’s quite beautiful. I’m forwarding to my graduate students.
    You’re my hero Robin!
