The Poet

From the Album  The Minstrel

He walks alone, stumbling through the darkness
Soul on fire, his heart cries out in pain
He grasps at words that fly forever round him
And sometimes fall
Who is he that lingers in the forest
Tortured by the loneliness within
And yet embraced by wonders that surround him
And soothe him still

Chorus
He’s a poet, a dreamer
Creator of the world
His words will take you anywhere
His tears will make you cry
He’s a lover, discover
The gift he longs to give to you
But don’t forget the man inside
He stands alone

So many times, he dreamt of perfect love
Between the fire, it surely must exist
And there above the flames that serve to blind us
Our God will stand
Through the years, reality has scourged him
But compromise will never block his path
Though only death will ever end his dreams
His words survive

THE STORY BEHIND THE SONG

Not much I can say about this song other than it is definitely not autobiographical. I was going through a bad time when I wrote it, but I have always been a loner so on the few occasions I have had to “walk alone,” it didn’t bother me too much.

But the song had to be about a poet, and who has ever heard of a happy poet?
