new song..
________________


here as i walk alone, i put myself in view
have i failed to be a mirror pointed back at You?
that You might see a glimpse of Your reflection in my life
here, as i walk alone, i try to look at me
am i still painted the way i’m supposed to be?
that You could still see Your brushstrokes marked in this canvas


i cant get enough of You.
where Your sun never fails to break this darkness
where Your love always stitches up these wounds
where i can just stop and hear “i love you”
that warmth i long to feel


here with my head bowed, i put myself in view
as if i was a storybook written by You
does it still read the way that you intended it to?
here with my head bowed, i try to look at me
if my life was a sculpture, could i still see
Your fingerprints marked, molding me the way i’m made to be


i cant get enough of You.
where Your sun never fails to break this darkness
where Your love always stitches up these wounds
where i can just stop and hear “i love you”
that warmth i long to feel


far beyond anything i could ever fathom
more complex than any words one could say
is the simplicity in the way You comfort me
letting me smile and know it’s okay
