Took It All (Harmer Sarah)

You said I could have it all You said it to me With your eyes so wide, excited I stop to see what you mean In the drone of afternoon traffic On a slope that's slippery In the relative fear, invited That keeps us company We took it all Without taking it away We shook it It didn't blow up in our face This life's abundancy came clear to me These hands are holding a kite of worry That floats high and circles a pivot of fear In the wind are the words that say "There's no time! Hurry!" So we grab what we can We think The End is near We took it all Without taking it away We shook it It didn't blow up in our face This life's abundancy came clear We can get back up We can move from this ground To where there is enough of everything What has opened up this crevice at our feet Has created a new sense of urgency Without taking it away We shook it It didn't blow up in our face This life's abundancy came clear
