Song of the Week
"High Above" by India Arie There are times When all the worlds seems grey When it's so hard to know where you find the courage for another day But there's a force in you Beneath the fear and doubt You must find a way you can bring it out There are times When all the world seems blue When it's so hard to hear the voice of wisdom You once felt in you But there's a fears and light That's very deep inside Don't be afraid let it be your guide And through all the headaches Hard times and heartbreaks Missteps and mistakes I will be there Promise you I will be high above Watching for you
