The New Country

Amanda Lindsey Cook


Listen Here

Verse 1

I’ve lived my life in the old country

Though not finding peace

My roots have grown deep

I’ve lived my life in the old country

Its joys and its pain

Don’t want me to leave

Verse 2

The place I have lived is not what it seems

The praises of man

Have put me to sleep

I want to know how it feels to be free

I’m not good at goodbyes

But I have to leave

Pre-Chorus

Invited unto death

Till all that I have left

Is everything I need

And I begin to breathe

Chorus

In the new country

In the new country

Verse 3

I want to live in this sacred space

Be present each moment

Each breath that I take

I want a love with nothing to gain

I’ve heard my beloved

Calling my name

Bridge

So I will let go and take another step

Crossing the borderline

Till I find what’s next

The New Country
