  1. Blessed Are

From the album 'in life thou art' EP

Blessed Are… Is a song that celebrates the people who go out of their way to help others. One night, on the way home from a gig, I drove past a man looking down and out, slumped in front of a Sydney bar. I wanted to see if he was ok, so I did a U-turn and when I got to him there was already someone consoling him. I found this act of kindness very moving and penned this tune that night.

Lyrics

Blessed are the merciful
Blessed are the meek
Blessed are the pure at heart, and the weak
The truth seekers found across the land
The messages found within the sand

Walk on by

Walk the earth with courage
Walk the earth with faith
Walk the earth forever, ain’t no other place
But here and now, we can be found
Looking around, hearing the sounds
Of this life, passing by

Walk on by

Blessed are the merciful
Blessed are the meek
Blessed are the pure at heart, and the weak
Lovers walking hand in hand
The ones who give and come and lend a hand
When we’re in need, when we don’t see
When we don’t eat or our hearts don’t beat
When we feel lost and out of control and somebody
Walking by attempts to console, our bleeding hearts
Our freaking minds, find the time

Walk on by

Walk the earth with courage
Walk the earth with faith
Walk the earth forever, ain’t no other place
But here and now, we can be found
Looking around, hearing the sounds
Of this life, passing by

Walk on by
