  1. Speak Through Me

From the recording Speak Through Me

This song asks god or the great spirit to speak through me that I may be a vessel of spirit and do something good and meaningful with my life. "Love's the one thing that we seek." The song never mentions "god" but is so clearly about spiritual or divine energy and the desire for connection.

Lyrics

Speak Through Me
 
Must be a million snowflakes
Spiraling by my window tonight
Together they make a blanket
But each one is a masterpiece in its own right
White on white on white
 
Must be a billion people
Looking for meaning on this earth
Together we tell the story
But each one has a moment to recite his verse
A lifetime to rehearse, a chance to heal the hurt
 
From the mighty to the meek
Love's the one thing that we seek
So when my turn comes to speak, speak through me
Words can break and words can build
So I pray, let mine be filled
With your wisdom and your will, speak through me
 
Now that I know what matters
Now that my heart is yours to hold
I realize my prize possessions
Never made me wealthy
They were just fool's gold
Only left me cold and empty in my soul
 
Chorus
 
From the mighty to the meek
Love's the one thing that we seek
So when my turn comes to speak, speak through me
I just ask before I die
That I can touch one single life
With compassion as my guide
Speak through me, speak through me
Words can break and words can build
So I pray, let mine be filled
With your wisdom and your will, speak through me
