I wrote this song to express a deep anxiety in my heart. Sometimes in the Christian life we are caught up in the world's model of performance and perfection. This creates a cloud over our already diminished ability to see things as they are. As I looked out at the grey sky that morning on a back porch in Oklahoma I knew of a day in the bright full sun but I also did not 'know it'. I am on the other side of that right now. Take courage friend, in the full light of His truth they will be ~ brighter again. -ecb


I woke up dreaming of a brighter tomorrow
I woke up living in a desperate sorrow
of which I could not break free
And Oh, how the dawn she hid behind the grey
kind of like the way that I'd been living

wipe the tears from your eyes
look to the skies again
days are looking brighter
things are turning up lighter friend, they're looking brighter again

And I feel just like a fool...
...a fool in love
but Oh, how my feelings they betray me
how could I ever portray Your heart for me?
