Inspired by conversations around struggling to believe in something we can't see. This lush arrangement is full of gospel choir harmonies from Horswood and Tamica Herod.

Lyrics

Evangeline
Written by Karen Morand and Gina Horswood March 2019

All the gurus say “Love yourself and love will come your way”
Every preacher testifies I’ll find God if I open up my eyes.
And I gotta believe love for me and my Maker
Won’t take forever
Evangeline

A stranger once said to me “You’ll get tired of being angry”
Most of those I know promise me, one day I’ll let you go
And I gotta believe the grip of this anger
Won’t be the death of me
Evangeline

There will come a day
I’ll rest high upon high
This drought will break and we’ll be washed under a merciful sky
Ya we’ll be washed under a merciful sky
Evangeline

Solidify my bones
Frail as ash there’s nothing left of me
How do I attone
When I am unravelling
And I gotta believe, ya I gotta believe
And I gotta believe, ya I gotta believe

There will come a day
I’ll rest high upon high
This drought will break and we’ll be washed under a merciful sky
And the river will carry our worries to the sea
It’s rolling on for you and it’s rolling on for me
And I gotta believe, I gotta believe it’s coming Evangeline
And I gotta believe, I gotta believe it’s coming Evangeline
And I gotta believe, I gotta believe it’s coming
