Sunday Sermonette: Don't Give Up

Though I saw it all around
Never thought I could be affected
Thought that we'd be the last to go
It is so strange the way things turn

Drove the night toward my home
The place that I was born, on the lakeside
As daylight broke, I saw the earth
The trees had burned down to the ground

Don't give up
You still have us
Don't give up
We don't need much of anything
Don't give up
'cause somewhere there's a place
Where we belong

Remarkable timing. Today I needed this.

What a pleasant surprise! Sinead O'Connor and Willie Nelson sound awesome. Beautifully arranged song, in a pairing I never would've imagined. Great find!

In general, I don't vet singers based on their political views. After all, they do have the brain of a singer.

The original, Peter Gabriel/Kate Bush version is my favorite song from the album "So"...
