INNOCENCE MISSION – You Are The Light

And I would like to cry in the car.

The blue violet hills and the voice of Neil Young.

I left the flowers outside your door.

Your curtains were flying

Though you were not at home.

And I can only say that I have hoped for you.

Safety from fears and darkness

Are you feeling better than before?

There’s a hidden life for everyone.

Sorrow remains though you can tell no-one.

The Host on your tongue is a perfect moon.

It does shine inside you.

You shine into the room.

And I can only say that I have hoped for you.

Safety from fears and darkness

Are you feeling better than before?

Down in the hallways in wintertime.

There is your great kindness

And you are the light.

And I can only say that I have hoped for you.

Safety from fears and darkness

Are you feeling better than before?

And I can only say that I have hoped for you.

Safety from fears and darkness

Are you feeling better than before?

There is a hidden life in all of the coaches & community leaders that work with children using Ball Project balls & sports equipment. They don’t do it for fame or fortune. They do it for because they love sport, love children, love their community. That is their great kindness.

& I can only say that I have hoped for our partners, for the coaches, for the children & for their communities.

Ball Project is grateful for Don & Karen Paris & Mike Bitts for making such beautiful & hopeful music. Ball Project is grateful for all of our partner coaches & community leaders around the world working faithfully to help children play.

One of our partners in Nepal is a drug & alcohol rehab center in Kathmandu.

This is just some of the truth they put on the walls as reminders.

Bad day not bad life

Mistakes

Help children play

“Give me a ball and I’ll have a thousand kids chasing after it.” –Solomon, Kenya
