A song for those going through tough times.


When things unravel
And roll away,
We need sometimes to feel we steer
Come what may

To take a grip,
Some small control,
Do something to help,
A needed role

We think we’re in charge,
It’s all illusion and no plan,
Bit by bit it falls away,
But we grasp at what we can,
We think we’re charge,
But it’s all illusion and no plan,
Bit by bit it falls away,
But we grasp at what we can.

What we can do,
Will balance out,
All that we can’t change,
Our every doubt

A gesture here,
A helping hand,
Heading off what we cannot face,
In falling sand


We’ll take heart from some small control
