TRIALS
Featuring Harriet Kilgore

Harriet Kilgore and Jens Erik Gould wrote this song as part of the Bravery Tapes episode "Harriet."

 

Lyrics:

Like a wildfire out of control 
I would rage and scream 
Life had taken its toll 

I was afraid of everything 

Lying in my soul 
All I really wanted was 
A love to make me whole 

 

Hard trials came, hard trials went 

And the lesson I learned were lessons well spent 
Looked in all the wrong places, searching outward all around 
When at last I looked inside, love overflowing I have found 

 

A new life faces me everyday 
Now that I’ve learned to get out of my own way 
Now I’m climbing higher, Sights set for glory 
Helping others is the moral of my story 

 

Hard trials came, hard trials went 
And the lesson I learned were lessons well spent 
Looked in all the wrong places, searching outward all around 
When at last I looked inside, love overflowing I have found
