Eliza Gilkyson & Friends – My Battle

Posted on Updated on

Eliza Gilkyson does a way better job with this song than my crappy iPhone camera, which cuts off about :08 before her final chord. Sorry.

To be free of attachments is not to be innocent of them. In a life that wills disharmony into nonexistence –that realigns real with time– every act (and non-act) becomes the singing of this song: an open-hearted, humble solemnifying of the dutiful hunger of loving people to love.

My sense of decency is never lonely when Woody’s music is playing.

Show me how, how to fight my battle in life
Show me how to fight
And I’ll run away with you

Teach me how, how to fight my hard times in life
Teach me how to fight and
I’ll run away with you

And I will never dread the day I will die
‘Cause my sunset is somebody’s morning sky

Show me how, how to face my troublesome fights
Show me how to face them
And I’ll run away with you

Teach me how, how to win my union in life
Show me how to win
And I’ll run away with you

And I will never dread the day I will die
‘Cause my sunset is somebody’s morning sky

Show me how, how to win for all of my people
Show me how to win
And I’ll run away with you

Teach me how, how to love this battle of life
Teach me how to love
And I’ll run away with you

How to fight, how to win, how to love
Teach me how, show me how, teach me how
How to love
How to fight, how to win, how to love
