Sons & Daughters by Allman Brown + Lisa Lawrence

Last night at Zumba I started to cry. Seriously, I did, right there in the midst of twenty women as we stretched. When this song came on it felt so powerful… and since then has been on my Spotify, in constant repeat. I’m not typically a crazy music person. I know I like it, I know I don’t like silence, and I know that music makes me feel things I can’t always put words to. I can’t sing to save my life, and my musical abilities date back to my short-lived career on the piano and a few failed attempts at flute lessons. I love when I discover a singer with a voice that gives you chills, the good kind. And that is what I found in Sons & Daughters, by Allman Brown + Lisa Lawrence.

Sons & Daughters

And I, will hold you tight, like the moon in the arms of the sky
And I, will keep you warm, I will build a fire in this house

And I’ll build a fire, you fetch the water and I’ll lay the table
and in our hearts, we still pray for sons and daughters
and all those evenings out in the garden, red,red,wine
These quiet hours turning to years

And I, I’ll wrap myself around your heart I’ll be the walls of his heart
And I, I’ll keep light on, to call you back home

And I’ll build a fire, you fetch the water and I’ll lay the table
and in our hearts, we still pray for sons and daughters
and all those evenings out in the garden, red,red,wine
These quiet hours turning to years

And it’s all to come for now we’re still young
just building our kingdom but it’s all to come

And I’ll build a fire, you fetch the water and I’ll lay the table
and in our hearts, we still pray for sons and daughters
and all those evenings out in the garden, red,red,wine
These quiet hours turning to years

It’s all to come for now we’re still young
