Tim Coons is an Indie/Folk/Gospel song writer. Family man surrounded by the lights of good people. My favorite story is the one about love that goes through hell, then resurrects as Love. Creator (with Betony Coons) of Giants and Pilgrims (www.giantsandpilgrims.com).


This is Why I Left You
by Tim Coons

I bow my head
By running through the red tape
I took it slow
On the edge of crime

My ears have burned
Because someone got caught talking
Those empty chairs
Around the bread and wine

This is why I left you
This is why I left
It’s not because I don’t care
It’s more than that

My tongue is tied, a fool without the answers
A creed for Christ, a platitude for why
My heart was hurt, poured out for the healing
A letter sent ,was kept locked up inside

This is why I left you
This is why I left
It’s not because I don’t care
It’s more than that

I hope you find your dreams there
I hope your dreams are met
And no one else is hurting, because of it

Each artist drew inspiration for their lyrics from quotes in Church Refugees about people who have walked away from organized religion, but not from God. It is our hope that these songs serve as a source of comfort and inspiration to those who have left and those who are thinking of leaving the church. ... more
