(Barbie Kelley, Nori Kelley & Lizzie Kelley)

Here I sit by your side, holding your hand, looking into your eyes
Wondering whatís meant to be, letting you go, out of my life
Where will I be without you?
Youíll be all right, yeah, cause God will see you through

So Iím gonna kiss you goodbye, And Iím gonna let you go
Even though itís not what I had planned
Well, Iím gonna miss you so, but itís all right for you to let go
ĎCause I know Who will hold you on the other side
So Iíll kiss you goodbye

I remember the times you held me close when I would cry
You held my hand as I walked, you taught me to run, you taught me to fly
Where will I be without you?
Iíll be all right, yeah, cause God will see me through, too

Where will I be without you?
Iíll be all right, yeah, cause God will see me through.... too

Before we moved to Japan in Ď03, I worked at an Italian restaurant in Alabama. My managerís mother was fighting cancer at that time. For her birthday, he hired Nori and I to sing for her in the hospital. We only chose three songs to sing, and one of those songs just happened to be one of her favorites! (I think it was ďI Could Sing Of Your Love ForeverĒ by Delirious) Such a God thing! She went on to be with Jesus a few months later, and Nori and I had the honor of singing at her funeral.

Death really takes us by surprise, even if itís long and drawn out. It sure is good to know where our loved ones are when they pass. (In John 14:6, Jesus said, ďI am the Way, the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through me.Ē) Get to know Jesus!

Influences, hmmm... Itís kind of hard for me to separate myself from the songs to figure out who it sounds like. I listened to 10,000 Maniacs a lot in college, so maybe this is a Natalie Merchant influence? Or maybe some of those awesome folk bands from the 60ís and 70ís like Simon and Garfunkle, or Carly Simon. Nori adds all of the cool ďlicksĒ and instruments behind me. Love that Rickenbacker 12 string!
