Eileen's Song
by Burlap To Cashmere

You have one wing, I have another
Seeking shelter like sister and brother
Through the winter and through the summer
Like one angel we'll fly far away

Hold my hand and we'll make it all right
From this hell that we live in
Cross the road until the light
Comes inside and lives within

It's a long and lonesome ride
When your friends have all gone home
But the roses in your eyes
They pull me in so I don't feel alone

You have one wing, I have another
Seeking shelter like sister and brother
Through the winter and through the summer
Like one angel we'll fly far away

Sometimes I just can't help but cry
When I think of what we've become
Like a soldier lost in the night
Forgetting all where he has come from

But the mud will soon become dry
And the sun will rise again
And the shadows in our eyes
Will fade away down to lower plains

'Cause you have one wing, I have another
Seeking shelter like sister and brother
Through the winter and through the summer
Like one angel we'll fly far away

You have one wing, I have another
Seeking shelter like sister and brother
Through the winter and through the summer
Like one angel we'll fly far away

You have one wing, I have another
Seeking shelter like sister and brother
Through the winter and through the summer
Like one angel, we'll fly far away

So my friend now this I say
I won't leave you hangin' on
Hold on tight now and don't fly away
Till one angel we have become

My childhood song. Remember my dad used to play this on the cassete. Better days. Sigh.

Every time i hear this cd it reminds me of when I first became born again(1998)! My children Loved hearing this when they were little and even to this day when I put it on they remember it

@1thess523 You dont like the new CCM or just CCM in general (new and old)?
I love Small Town Poets.

@***** I have some Small town Poets on my channel. I know what you mean about music being good, when i became a Christian in 98' we had a local station that played Burlap, Small town poets, all star United, Cademons Call and a bunch of others in the more alternative genre's but then it became K-Love and I pretty much stopped listening to it because I really don't like the mainstream Christian music it's not my style.

The best thing about this band was that they didn't advertise God's message blatantly through lyrics. Sometimes, the message needs to just be by the music itself, not just the words.

Even after becoming a serious music snob, this song from my childhood stays super close to my heart and reminds me that God's love and comfort is very much like this.
