Every Day you Save My Life

You could have bowed out gracefully, but you didn't.
You knew enough to know to leave well enough alone, but you wouldn't.
I drive myself crazy trying to stay out of my own way with the messes that I make,
But my secrets are so safe.
The only one who gets me, yeah, you get me.
It's amazing to me...
How every day, every day you save my life.

I go around all broken down and crowded out and you're a comfort.
Sometimes the place I go is so deep and dark and desperate I don't know,
I don't know how every day, every day, every day
You save my life.

Sometimes I swear I don't know if I'm coming or going
But you're always saying something without even knowing
That I'm hanging on to your words with all of my might
And I'm alright, yeah, I'm alright
For one more night.

Every day you save my life.

Close Call

Last week my step-dad, Mike Patton, had a close brush with death. He had a couple of heart attacks and total corinary blockage. Thank God for some collateral arteries that kept blood pumping through there. The cool thing is that after several stints, he is recovering well. And he has decided to divorce his pride and make changes toward being a more unifying person. Praise God! Here's to you, Mike, and the next 30 years! May they be better than the last.
