In Love With You … Thoughts In The Desert

137577865941b2e

Yesterday I knew you, you seemed so close to me

Closer than a brother, such a comfort you could be

Guiding me so closely, I felt your leading hand

Walking in your footsteps, through uncharted lands

Then a fork in the road

I took my eyes off you

Losing sight of where you lead me

I forgot the thing I knew

 

When did I stop falling, when did I stop calling, when did I stop falling

In love with you

 

Yesterday I saw you, so beautiful and fair

Anointing you gently, with my tears and hair

Sitting at your feet, was all I could do

Nothing else mattered, you were all that was true

Then I set my eyes on Egypt

While you turned the other way

So much I just can’t tell you

But you know the price I pay

 

When did I stop falling, when did I stop calling, when did I stop falling

In love with you

 

Yesterday’s a memory, a distant road ago

While I seek for newer answers one thing I just can’t let go

Someone said it simply, though I’m not sure just who

If It’s new it isn’t true, If it’s true it isn’t new

 

When did I stop falling, when did I stop calling, when did I stop falling

In love with you

Away ~ Words of the Prodigal

walkingaway


Struck out on my own
Struck out all alone
In search for so much more, but I found much less
Abandoned shallow love
Left any pretense of
Faith, trust, security, but I still see your eyes

I still see your hands
Do they welcome me?
Or push me away?

Stained glassed and boxed in
Tried to define my sin
Your sense of morality had no place for me
The picture’s weaker here
Not thinking all that clear
Sometimes it’s easier just to say goodbye

But if I change my mind
Would you welcome me?
Or push me away?

Don’t you know my love for you?

In your heart you know it’s true

Though at times you may not see

In my heart you’ll always be

 
They say you’re there for me
They say you’ll always be
Where were you on the day I needed you
Can’t tell what’s inside
Too many things to hide
Someday I just may see, but I don’t know
Confusion in the fray
No reason left to stay
Your cross blocks me way, I see the thorns in your brow

See the nails in your hands
Though they welcome me
I push you away
