I wrote "Beautiful Place" in 2007 when I was going through a loss of faith, feeling like I had nothing familiar to hold onto, which freed me in unexpected ways.

Lyrics

Beautiful Place
©2008 McCall Erickson

See that bird
flyin in the air
I’m just wonderin
how she got there

What crazy notion
made her leave her nest
What made her hope
for more than second best

It’s a trip
to be flyin around
longing for days
on solid ground

You can tell I’ve been crying
but don’t feel bad for me
It’s true I’m lost
but I’m finding
It’s a beautiful place
a beautiful place to be

Grace comes in ways
I never knew
Surrender and loneliness
to name a few

Birds and I
in places we don’t know
Maybe grace will
show us where to go

You can tell I’ve been crying
but don’t feel bad for me
It’s true I’m lost
but I’m finding
It’s a beautiful place
a beautiful place to be

Take me
Take me
Make of me what you will
Whisper
Whisper to me
While I’m standing still
in this beautiful place
This beautiful place
This beautiful place to be

If I make it
out of this alive
I’ll be sure to tell you
how I survived

But for now
I’ll be taking it slow
So many things
I don’t even know

You can tell I’ve been crying
but don’t feel bad for me
It’s true I’m lost
but I’m finding
It’s a beautiful place
a beautiful place to be
