Waves of Adrenaline: Music

Splunking

(Waves of Adrenaline)
August, 2008
Bridget Ahrens & Alana Shaw

Spelunking

We’re off on a wild adventure

Spelunking with caution thrown wide

Can you trust that I will return to you

With the essence of me still inside?

Descending with confidence, fearless

To the darkness and coolness and deep

Where I feel my way with my fingers

And the seeing is inward and deep.

[chorus]

The world reveals itself slowly

Unspooling its scenes and its threads

There is so much for me to unravel

And weave it together unsaid.

There is danger above and below me

There is danger, too, lurking inside

When I choose to dive into this moment

There really is nowhere to hide.

The gravity holds me so tightly

My essence won’t spirit away

Will you wait, will you trust

Will you love me?

I’ll be back at the end of the day. [chorus]
