Learning to Live with Baba

After Learning How to Live by Lucinda Williams

 

I’m learning how to live

With You in my life.

I’m learning how to forgive

And follow through in Your Light.

 

You took the most of what I had amassed in sin.

I’ll make the best of what You left me with.

I’m learning how to live.

 

So many paths I’ve tried to travel on,

And Your past names are still on my tongue.

Time to forget myself, time to let go and let die

I just remember Your ways and how You make me cry.

Oh, I’m learning how to live.

 

All I have left is this hollow bone that sings

But I wouldn’t trade it for anything.

The days ahead will take me into Your flame

That’s why I called You and why You came.

I’m learning how to live.

 

I’m learning how to live

With You in my life.

I’m learning how to forgive

And follow through in Your Light.

 

I’ve given You all I had to give.

There’s nothing left for me to leave or take with.

I’m learning how to live.

I’m learning how to live.

I’m learning how to live.
