She's trying to define her faith
like it's some role that she's playing
I tell her, "You remind me of someone else..."
But who it is I'm not saying "Hear me out," she says,
"I'm getting older, I don't need to justify
myself to you. Do you hear me?"

chorus:
When she walks in a room
it's like she's walking on water
or stepping across the moon
like she's gravity's only daughter
She's weightless
weightless

and I say, "You're just confused
because you talk too much to angels
and they faithfully refuse
to answer questions that are painful..."

"But Faith has no weight," she says,
"Now, Doubt, now, there's the burden...
You're completely right to think you're grounded -
Do you hear me?"

chorus

Photo-John - step away from the chalkboard. Go breathe some fresh air. Listen to your music of choice.  Think tranquil thoughts. Then, go out to the dump and shoot rats.
Or jump in the T-16 and go after some womp rats.

A very good name for this song.

I love Ellis Paul's music.  He did a song called "3,000 Miles" about a million years ago - I heard it on a radio station out of Eugene, Oregon, on a program called "View From the Front Porch."  It was SO good that I recorded it onto cassette.  Lost the cassette, but I can still hear the song in my mind.  Ellis Paul's music does that to me, I guess.... {#Sunny}
First listen = nice.
Jack Johnson + Rod Stewart = Ellis Paul ?
...reminds me of peter greenstone...
This was my first "favorite" Ellis Paul song many years ago.......
