Spoken World

singer-songwriter / sojourner

 CLOSE

 

i heard you've been

searching for peace

 

is it not found with

the company you keep

 

or does it all seem as empty

as the life that you lead

 

 

ive been a friend

to fools for so long

 

i've gotten so used

to suffering harm

 

throwing all my pearls to swine

thinking things would change with every try

 

--

 

i find that i am tired

most of the time

 

longing for more than what

passes me by

 

--

 

it's another day another night

more than i can take though i try to fight

 

i am beaten like the grains of sand

on the few shores i've had the privilege to stand

 

--

 

and i'm lost and as found as each one of them

tossed by the tides every foothold i've tried

 

i beg the ocean to just take me in

 

i find myself embraced like a warm summers night

on an empty beach

 

the fullness of Your being

far more than my mind can take

 

but my soul feels inflamed

 

 

and those stars aren't thrown across the sky

but each of them placed

 

and to think any less of ourselves

well that's a disgrace

 

we're all fearfully

and wonderfully made

 

home's not here

He's calling

He's coming

 

the appeal of this life will fade
