lyrics

He holds us close
(Lyrics by Matt Tooley)

There’s a man on a tree,
greatest of these
head is bowed
as you take his breath away
hear him say, “it’s over now”

i love you, my father
i will trust in you

here’s a boy on his knees least of these
sin on his mind
and it takes my breath away
you still say, “son, it’s all right”

i love you, my father
i will trust in you . . . even though
i don’t always know why you give your herd
what we don’t deserve
i just want to say
father, that it takes my breath away

there’s a friend of mine
one day finds a beautiful girl
and she takes his breath away
vows are made, wonderful and sure

i love you, my father
i will trust in you

but just three months in
an accident brings dismay
and as you gave us breath of life
you took his wife, took his breath away

i love you, my father
i will trust in you . . . even when
i don’t understand why you let your sheep
fall and hurt and bleed
but despite the pain i just have to say
father, i hear you say, “just breathe away”

about

Karl Miles Batavia, Illinois

I have finished recording my latest Catholic studio album "Where are the Warriors" an album which is a call to Catholic's to live our faith to its fullest meaning...we are called to be saints.

God's truth and love concurs all evil, but people must be able to feel and see this love in us. It is my hope, truth and love is heard in my music.
