Hold Back the Wind, Donna

from the album "Outdoor Elvis"

Words and Music by camarillo Eddy
1989 Broken Songs

it's the little things you do
that you don't think break through
you build a mansion
with God's Son
you light a candle
and the kingdom comes
doesn't seem like much now
like you're the failing one

but hold back the wind, donna
hold back the wind, donna
stand in the breach with us, donna
and hold back the devil wind

it's the little prayer you pray
or the little lie you say
it's love and hate
but choosing love
faith winning out
against the odds
doesn't seem like much now
a losing cause

but hold back the wind, donna
hold back the wind, donna
stand in the breach with us, donna
and hold back the devil wind

the grass is breaking through
it's just a blade or two
up through the concrete
and the angels smile
will be a green field
in just a little while
seems like we're asking too much
from one little child

but hold back the wind, donna
hold back the wind, donna
stand in the breach with us, donna
and hold back the devil wind

yeah, hold back the wind, donna
hold back the wind, donna
stand in the breach with us, donna
and hold back the devil wind

yeah, hold back the wind
yeah, hold back the wind
