Spartan Song

Words and Music by Kim Baker

Let's start at the beginning
A mother and her child
Their love is raw and wild
Pierces with a smile
Then jump ahead twenty years
And the world has lost it's style
My life is put on trial
Burdens of denial
Then all my burdens fade away
As I surrender to this day
I yearn to have no name
Please take me away
Why is it? Some people get away with murder?
It doesn't get us any further
Along this road
Because the oranges taste so sweet
In the summer of youth's heat
The crowd jumps to its feet
Joyous yells complete
Then all my burdens fade away
As I surrender to this day
I yearn to have no name
Please take me away
Now your heart is pounding
Blood rushes through your veins
All I can do is pray
Just one more day
I hold tightly to your hand
I hope they'll understand
My life just can't go on
Now that I've seen the dawn
