The Chosen Ones (Ferron)

I'd think of all those people with their love and understanding How they wear it like they had it from the start I must have been the other kind... the kind with just a lonely mind and heart And from where you stand you're an attractive revelation And from where I stand I'm mostly on my knees And from there I said hello, felt something small and slow Say "Please, please, please" And though it's just a thought, It's such a saving shot... For every person there's a rhyme and a reason To decide to be the chosen one to stand among the broken ones. I remember crying down a long and withered highway I remember waiting for my story to begin. Had all my laughs cut short, a boat without a port A ragged house of tin. But ... maybe it's true about the teacher when you're ready Maybe it's true about the hollow and the slope Love, turn my steps around Let me fall on solid ground with Faith and rope. And though its just a thought, I say it's all I've got... For every person there's a rhyme and a reason To decide to be the chosen one to stand among the broken ones. Outside a window there's a night beyond all secrets And outside that window there's a window shining in And it shows a room that has a fire steady burning And a woman knowing that the darkness can't come in And she wants to thank you for your love and understanding She needs to thank you for your honour to the soul It's love from someone who believed she'd need a stand in To tell her story let alone to live it whole And though it's just a thought, she says it's all we've got For every person there's a rhyme and a reason To decide to be the chosen one to stand among the broken ones. stand among the broken ones, stand among the broken ones... For every person May love come through For every person May love come through
