​A Line In The Sand

This song is by Jeff Martin and appears on the album Live in Dublin (2007).

Tell me what would you do if I told you the truth
And I took you by the hand
To see the dust swirl in pools and a dark desert cools
In an empty wasted land
Tell me what would you do if this happened to you
Would it help you now to understand

There's a line in the sand a line in the sand
It'll keep you from the promised land
It's just a line in the sand

And what would you say if I told you today
That your mother won't hold your hand any more
Because she's broken and tired she's inflamed with desire
To turn her head and and walk away

From the line in the sand the line in the sand
It'll keep you from the promised land
It's just a line in the sand a line in the sand
It's going to keep you from the promised land

The refineries burn and your mother she turns
To watch you stumble into the night
She's run out of tears have you run out of fear
Is your candle still burning bright

You crossed that line in the sand the line in the sand
It's going to keep you from the promised land
