Sacred Ground

Some things are better off lost than found
But I slowed down on the Sacred Ground
That old place looked different it seemed
But I still remembered where we used to meet

Holding her closer than close to me
We had crossed over the boundaries
The canvas stretching before our eyes
Was dusk blushing across the sky

Once before the Dreaming Light
Until the wake of the Burning Eye
For the secrets and love I found
I sacrificed my heart on the Sacred Ground

Under the blanket of sultry air
She told me her tribe made a stand right there
Two hearts faster than the moon could climb
I followed her down on the Sacred Ground

Once before the Dreaming Light
Until the wake of the Burning Eye
For the secrets and love I found
I sacrificed my heart on the Sacred Ground

Her ancestors blessed this place
With their beliefs in the land they graced
The universe was centered then
The outside world came crashing in

Back on the path beneath my feet
To set the years between that holy place and me
I couldn't help looking back on more time
I closed my eyes and I opened wide

Once before the Dreaming Light
Until the wake of the Burning Eye
For the secrets and love I found
I sacrificed my heart on the Sacred Ground
For the secrets and love I found
I sacrificed my heart on the Sacred Ground
I lost my heart on the Sacred Ground
I lost my heart on the Sacred Ground
