Beiní Tender    Click here for mp3     click here for wave (high speed recommended)

Breakers on a granite shore, I can take no more of this hard domain
I escape white water flow, the strong undertow to a life of chains
Iíve been swept to the bottom in a whirlpool of promises
I stand on the beach and I try to stay dry, water laps at my feet, and Iím tearful again

Beiní tender, Iíve known it for so long, and I hope with this song
Youíll come on and sing along a Ďcause beiní tender is oh so strong

Dangling sticks over a cliff, the winds here are stiff on this rocky slope
City legs, they do lament, alpine ascent, I climb for hope
The higher I get the smaller I feel, fears disappear and the sun softens my outlook
My head clears, so I let go the rope

Beiní tender, Iíve known it for so long and I hope with this song
Youíll come on and sing along a Ďcause beiní tender is oh so strong

High above the timberline I rescue my mind from the worldís embrace
Dust comes in a burst of fire, the flowers retire to the mountainís face
Blue dragonflies lull the grasses to sleep, they dream of spring rain 
And in soft summer sighs I tell them my pain and with them I find peace

Beiní tender, Iíve known it for so long, and I hope with this song
Youíll come on and sing along a Ďcause beiní tender is oh so strong
