“By Way of Sorrow”

I am working on a screenplay called The Sunflower Fence.   This gorgeous song is my touchstone.  

The song is by Julie Miller and the lyrics are as follows:

By Way Of Sorrow  Julie Miller
You’ve been taken by the wind
You have known the kiss of sorrow
Doors that would not take you in
Outcast and a strangerYou have come by way of sorrow
You have come by way of tears
But you’ll reach your destiny
Meant to find you all these years
Meant to find you all these years

You have drunk a bitter wine
With none to be your comfort
You who once were left behind
Will be welcome at love’s table

You have come by way of sorrow
You have come by way of tears
But you’ll reach your destiny
Meant to find you all these years
Meant to find you all these years

All the nights that joy has slept
Will awake to days of laughter
Gone the tears that you have wept
You’ll dance in freedom ever after

You have come by way of sorrow
You have come by way of tears
But you’ll reach your destiny
Meant to find you all these years
Meant to find you all these years
