Mason Jennings Lyrics: Sacred Place

Sacred Place
from If You Need A Reason EP


I'm going to a place
Thoughts can't follow me
Down to a quiet space
Where my mind is free

Free from all suffering
Free from my own name
And when I'm there I know
We are all the same

I'm going to a place
Older than the sun
Darkness within itself
Where we all come from

Death has no power here
Love is all there is
Darkness within itself
Do you remember this

Remember, remember
It has always been
The kingdom, the kingdom
Of God lies within

Hold to the center
Beyond time and space
Gotta find a sacred place
Everybody's got a sacred place

I'm going to a place
I know it by heart
And there I know that we'll
Never be apart

Words do not matter here
Time is just a friend
Light shining from itself
Light without end


I saw a photograph
Of a speeding train
And when it leaves I now
Know it will remain

A candle is burning bright
Here beside my bed
Thank you for teaching me
