Bailey, Sam - Lord Is It Mine Lyrics

I know that there's a reason why I need to be alone
You show me there's a silent place that I can call my own
Is it mine, oh Lord, is it mine?

You know I get so weary from the battles in this life
And many time it seems that you're the only hope inside
Is it mine?

When everything's dark and nothing seems right,
there's nothing to win and there's no need to fight

I never cease to wonder at the cruelty of this land
but it seems a time of sadness is a time to understand
Is it mine, Lord is it mine?

When everything's dark and nothing seems right,
You don't have to win and there's no need to fight

If only I could find a way
to feel your sweetness through the day
The love that shines around me could be mine.
So give us an answer, won't you,
We know what we have to do,
There must be a thousand voices trying to get through.

When everything's dark and nothing seems right,
You don't have to win and there's no need to fight
Lord, is it mine? Oh Lord, is it mine?

  7. bano chase

    everytime I catch this song when im alone not much else matters for a few easy minutes

  8. Glenn Fletcher

    WHITFKKKK!!! Who Can dislike a piano intro so stunningly emotive ?? Metal heads ore controlled by some dumb self movement??? But cannot just accept they are Human Beings..same deal for all??? Screw our differences...Relax..all my life I have faced ridicule for my extremely open taste. To me music is great if it’s GREAT??...TO ME SUPERTRAMP TYPE BANDS WERE JUST FLUKES OF THE ARTS WORLD WHO JUST HAD TIME, AND A GREAT KILLER ALBUM THAT FITTED THEIR MUSIC. BUT THESE WERE THE AS INSAY FLUKES. MOST IF THE CHARTS WE ALL KNOW SUCK !!!!..but if something is ALTERNATIVE ENOUGH, AND well can show up like a LIFEFORM and destroy the Number 1 for up to years...gnz

  9. Corntastrophy

  10. Cookie Canaday

    Makes you think.

  11. Cookie Canaday

    Makes you thin.

  12. David Nodiff

    Great album! Two memories - we sang this song in high school after a girl in our chorus recommended it. Also remember riding my bike home from working at a fast food restaurant with the radio attached as it played “Take the Long Way Home” (back in 1979)....great album!!


    One of those deep tracks that get almost no airplay.
    Until some major event like 9/11.

  14. rlui123

    When you are taunting your ex into more battles...

    "THIS is Tyler?
    This is for objects, not people.

  22. Tim Sadinski

    The world has lost belief.. and everybody has all their friends on Facebook it's a sad world when God becomes insignificant to others who think they know what this life is about all I can do is pray for them. I'm not a strict religious person what do believe in is God always gave humans sanctuary... in the mind... I'm with Ozzy ...see you on the other side there's got to be something... and Technology they believe and think they have the answers as well as science but humans that strive for answers always come up empty... radiation barriers and artificial gravity when you get that you tell me we can go to space until then humans will be morphed into aliens that we describe now

  23. Connie Thomas

    Song always makes me tear up..... beautiful.

  24. Matt Bishop

    I'm 56 and just now discovering this song. I owned the Breakfast in America album in 1980 but somehow missed this jewel.

    David Hoy

    It's never too late Matt. I'm 52 and only really discovered this song about 12 years ago. Always loved Supertramp. And this song is just another reason why. The 80s rocked, and in my opinion, heavy metal was just a small portion of the era. There was so much of this type of music as well, that no one really listened 2. Wasn't interested then, now it's on my top picks list. Keep searching there is tons more out there. Giuffria, John Eddie, John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band, The Call.

  25. luciano bergamin

    Terribilmente bella e nostalgica!!


    the best songs ....remembering good times

  27. steelyman08

    I think I would simply have to like anyone who loves this song as much as I do. It's the kind of special song that can't help but bring people together on some level.

  28. rolf bay

    Super Track.

  42. clinically diagnosed

    I know that there's a reason why I need to be alone
    You show me there's a silent place that I can call my own
    Is it mine?
    Oh Lord is it mine?

    You know I get so weary from the battles in this life
    And there's many times it seems that you're the only hope in sight
    Is it mine?
    Oh Lord is it mine?

    And nothing seems right
    There's nothing to win
    And there's no need to fight

    quello che si e' perso a londra,

    magari e' presto per questo:

    ...magari c'e' il doppiosenso?

    ...e mo' sto crossover (chiasmo?):

    Life is about experience
    Experience life

  62. ANNIE H.

    Love the whole CD Breakfast in America from Take a look at my girlfriend to this wonderful beautiful song. Glad that I found it years ago by accident. Still listen to it many times especially when I am sad.

    Me too friend..

  70. Victor Izquierdo

    Sé que hay una razón por la que necesito estar solo
    Tú me muestras que hay un lugar silencioso al que puedo llamar mío
    Esto es mío
    Oh señor esto es mío

    Tú sabes que me canso tanto en las batallas de esta vida
    Y hay muchas veces que parece que eres la única esperanza a la vista
    Esto es mío

    Oh señor esto es mío

    Cuando todo está oscuro
    Y nada parece correcto
    No hay nada que ganar
    Y no hay necesidad de luchar

    Nunca dejo de preguntarme por la crueldad de esta tierra
    Pero parece que un tiempo de tristeza es un tiempo para entender
    Esto es mío
    Oh señor esto es mío
    Cuando todo está oscuro
    Y nada parece correcto

    No tienes que ganar

    Y no hay necesidad de luchar
    Si sólo pudiera encontrar una manera de sentir tu dulzura durante el día
    El amor que brilla a mi alrededor podría ser el mío
    Así que danos una respuesta, ¿querrías?
    Nosotros sabemos que nosotros tenemos que hacer
    Debe de haber miles de voces que intentan conectarse.

  71. Susan Hopkins

    A beautiful prayer. Oh, Lord .... is it mine?

  72. Don't Blink!

    Saw them in Cleveland...thinking it was 1979. Anyway, a phenomenal concert... lights, video effects and of course the music!

  74. mike crater


  75. Rob Goddard

    If you dont like this song... do you have a soul? You know what you have to do.

  76. Phoenix VETERAN of SOUND


  77. Lucas Duarte

    O melhor de tudo é que a letra remete completamente ao filme "Into the Wild", além claro do nome adotado pelo protagonista da história ser Alexander Supertramp...

    Era pra essa música estar no filme definitivamente

  78. eugenio pannozzo

    I love supertramp.

  79. Jack López linares

    Yes it is mine
    Yes it is yours
    Not his, not hers, not there's
    God gave you this life
    Not to he, not to she, not to them
    He gave life to me
    I make it I braek it
    Yes it is mine, yes it is yours

  84. KADER M

  88. Eugene Danker

    What happened to music since then? Nothing like this exists today.

    David Hoy

    Isn't it nice to hear a sad song that comes from someone's heart and Soul, teamed up with four or five other band members playing instruments, to put together an amazing song like this.

  89. poisson mars

    Un chef d'oeuvre. A écouter sans limite. Heureusement que ce groupe a exister. C'est ma jeunesse, mon ado . Un passé toujours présent .

  90. Luis Arrivillaga

    Me transporta a mi señor esta hermosa canción!!!

  91. Daniel Higgins

    One of my very first records. Still listen to Breakfast in America often. But this song.....tears and wonderful memories.

  92. Nathalie Picquet

    J'écoute Supertramp, depuis mes 14 ans , j ai 54 ans et je suis toujours une fan . Je les adore toujours autant ❤

    Thomas Poslusny

    OUI........... !

  93. Ian Shields

    As great as this song is, it's even better as it arrives on the album, right after the joyous "Take the Long Way Home" and its lonesome train-whistle fade-out.

    This album is sheer musical ecstasy from start to finish -- a triumph of songwriting, performance, programming, and engineering throughout. It sounds just as good now as it did in '78. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻


    Perfect description.

  94. Sergio Navarro

    Simplemente, grandiosa, llega al corazón.

  95. Dawn Sorenson

    Love this song

  96. Jeannine M

    I've always loved this.
