    Flood of Emotions

    Forty days and forty nights
    since last I had you in my sight
    dawn and dusk have both been dark
    since the time came to embark.

    It seemed all else under the sun
    rode the waves beside someone,
    two by two they'd all marched on
    unaware of what was gone.

    For weeks like years I searched the skies
    the clouds hid where my future lies,
    but while I hoped to come ashore
    I saw the raven nevermore.

    Until one day returned the dove
    an olive branch brought from my love,
    I found I was on firm, dry land
    again you held me in your hand.

    Forty days and forty nights
    since last I had you in my sight
    And now I am on firm, dry land
    again I hold you in my hand.

    Written in 1999, this song is about being away on a long journey.

    Some people think it's about Noah's Ark, but I don't know where they get that from.
