Toni Childs CD House of Hope is an amazing collection of songs that speak directly to survivors. One song in particular, Next to You, resonated with me about the struggles of intimacy and closeness and the desire to trust and love. Her lyrics are awesome and her voice transforms them into something very special.

TONI CHILDS-NEXT TO YOU: LYRICS

I'd like to get next to you
If you want me to

I could hold you
Maybe I could show you
But I'm afraid
Cause you see I have been hurt before
Though I don't want to hurt no more
This feeling inside of me
Is strong in me
Is strong in me
Could you tell me who you are
And would I really want to know
What's it been for you
Just to trust and hold on, too

I'd like to get next to you
Whenever you wanted to
I'd like to get next to you
Whenever you wanted to

You could hold me
Maybe you could show me
How to trust
Cause you see I have been hurt before
Though I don't want to hurt no more
This feeling inside of me
Is strong in me
Is strong in me
Could I tell you who I am
And would you really want to know
What it's been for me
Just to trust and to believe

Could I show you who I am
Would you really want to understand
Holding skin to skin
My emotion feels like it has no end
Could I show you myself
Could I get right next to you,
Next to you

Thanks for the posting of the link and the kind words of greeting.

The Starhawk quote is wonderful.
