"Evening Prayer" is the eleventh track on EXPATRIATES.

The famous expatriate pictured on this page is T. S. Eliot.

"May the road rise to meet you. May the wind be always at your back." -Irish blessing


Bless the lane lines on the highway
Bless the laugh lines on your face
Bless the addict in the doorway
Bless the things that cannot be replaced

Bless the crosswalk on the corner
Bless the boardwalk, Jersey Shore
Bless the misery of the mourner
Bless the things that will not be ignored

Bless the carefree, bless the burdened
Bless the spoon-fed and deprived
Bless the remnants of the fallen
Bless the few who made it out alive

Bless the heartbeat of the city
Bless the downbeat on the one
Bless the hollow-eyed and gritty
Bless the things that should not be undone

Bless the white lines on the freeway
Bless the laugh lines on your face
Bless the night light in the hallway
Bless the daylight, gone without a trace


from EXPATRIATES, released March 15, 2011
