Tom Prasada-Rao: songs

I Begin to See Your Face

(tom prasada-rao)
TPR & Pierce Pettis
What an incredible experience to write with Pierce! I am so grateful for this song.
I BEGIN TO SEE YOUR FACE
tpr & pierce pettis


It’s not the raging of the sea
It’s not the tide that’s pulling me
It’s more the way the seabirds play
I begin to see your face

Not in a temple or a mosque
Or stone cathedral cold and dark
But in the coolness of the day
I begin to see your face

It’s not the sun that burns me eyes
The one eyed one the sputnick spy
It’s in the longing lovers ache
I begin to see your face

It’s not the pilgrimage we make
It’s not the road we do not take
But in the turns along the way
I begin to see your face
