Artist's Notes

My wife and I retired to a more rural setting 2 years ago on a wetland.   The previous owner did some extensive damage to the land and we have been trying to do some restoration.    This song is about restoring the borrowed land that we live on for a short time.


Lyrics

Only Borrowed

By Brent Godfrey   ©   2020            

 

Verse 1                      

The land?s not ours it?s only borrowed.    We must give it back intact. 

New generations depend upon us.   A sacred contract.

Oh Blessed Earth.   Mother Nature.   I will do all that I can.

To restore you to health & beauty.  Despite the ravages of man.

 

Chorus

Everything  Has a Meaning  All Things have a voice

In the vast cosmic ether.   You still have a choice

Earth spirits come together.   Protect this land in need

Bring us all a brighter future.  Filled with love not with greed.               

 

Verse 2

There?s a pathway to the water.  There?s a pathway deep inside

The answer is all around us.   See the trees reaching for the sky.

Hold your hands up in surrender.  It is not about me and you.

There?s a greater plan all around us in Nature?s majestic view.

 

Instrumental Chorus

 

Verse 3

In a never ending cycle.  Destruction and rebirth will come to pass

It?s not too late to save our Mother.   But the deadline is approaching fast

Light filters thru between the shadows.  Light and dark there side by side

It is time to come together.   Time to heal the great divide

 

Chorus

 

This land?s not ours it?s only borrowed.   We must give it back intact
