From the album Love Was Here First.

Written by Carolyn Arends.

Molecules and atoms, just like Eve and Adam
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
Even still I wonder – when we are six feet under
Will that truly be the end of us

‘Cause why beauty, why poetry
Why “no! no! no!” to every tragedy
Why laughter, why lullabies
And why this asking why

I have a body, but I am a soul
I see a fraction, it’s not the whole
I cannot prove it, but still I know
I have a body … I am a soul

A sculpture or a canvas can speak a private language
Telling secrets hidden in the heart
About a world of spirit – I swear sometimes I hear it
Playing like a piper in the dark

It’s in love songs, in symphonies
In funeral marches and in liturgies
It’s in whispers, in rally cries
In dreams that won’t say die

You have a body but you are a soul
You see a fraction, it’s not the whole
I cannot prove it, but still I know
You have a body … you are a soul

World without end, amen

Chorus
