Let the words dance

(Back to index of lyrics)

 

Down in the dust you write                    

While the accusations fly

Down in the dust you write

Down in the dust you write                             

While the accusations fly                                          

Down in the dust you write

 

Here we are together                         

The maker and the maid                                            

Standing in this little space in time

You and I together     

The sinner and the slain

The Holy one unflinching by my side

                        

Let the words dance                           

Let the words dance and come alive                    

Let the words dance

 

Down in the dust you write

While the accusations fly

Down in the dust you write

 

All that I have ever done                          

And all the pain I’ve caused                        

Seems naked here for all to see   

Who cannot see their own

 

Fear and condemnation circle us like wolves             

My life is in your hands and in your words

the heat and dust intensify intensify and breed

I dare not look at you

Or take you in        

 

Down in the dust you write 

While the accusations fly

Down in the dust you write

 

At last you stand and straighten                 

Fire in your eyes                                          

You drop a question into all the noise

Is there one among you

truly without sin

Let him be the first to cast a stone

 

Let the words dance …

                          

Slowly they all slip away until we are alone

I tremble as I look into your eyes                                       

Has any one condemned you no sir no not one                                      

Then nor do I go and sin no more

                          

Let the words dance...

 

I pronounce you virgin and untouched and without blame
