Signal by Sara Groves

Just after I hit publish on the previous post, I stumbled across this video and lyrics. What a beautiful expression of the heart of an adolescent's Mama.

"All the clichés about how fast kids grow are true.
I woke up this morning eye to eye with you.
The love songs and adages couldn't explain the hope
Of all you're becoming, body and soul.

Your heart goes out,
I can hear your song.
Your signal is getting stronger
Your signal is getting strong.
There's no cliché when I hear your song.
Your signal is getting stronger.
Your signal is getting strong.

Many clichés about living this life are true.
The path is worn, but for us it's new.
There's no way to know it without discovering.
We are marking our missteps with mercy.

Your heart goes out,
I can hear your song.
Your signal is getting stronger.
Your signal is getting strong.
There's no cliché when I hear your song
Your signal is getting stronger.
Your signal is getting strong.

It's all been said, but don't be afraid to throw back your head and sing anyway.
Your heart goes out I can hear your song.
Your signal is getting stronger.
Your signal is getting strong.
There's no cliché when I hear your song.
Your signal is getting stronger.
Your signal is getting strong.

All the clichés about how much I love you are true.
As big as the sky and up to the moon
A million zillion
Infinity plus one."
-Signal by Sara Groves (from the album Floodplain)
