Figuring it out:
You're always there when I call
You come closer and shower me with gifts
But that's not what I want, and I haven't received them
Then I walk around, and everyone else receives.
I see them bloom and shine
For a time I used to ask, "Why not I?"
Then I realise, it's you I want, and not your gifts.
You make me smile, you cause me to love,
You lift me up, in my soul
I've always reached out for you
When I met people, I talked to you
I used to chatter away all the time
Didn't know why.
But it was good, and I always better
For talking to you
Everything else falls by the way,
All my work, and all my play
When I am me, then I meet you
Somewhere, sometime, somehow
I met you this morning,
When I finally was me.
I tried to play to you
I tried to sing for you
I tried to be for you
And that worked for a while
Then I just did my own thing
And lo and behold, you were here
And I couldn't continue.
I guess it doesn't matter what I do
I only need to see you
That happens when I do my stuff
So now I'll just be me
And meet you around
Looks like I got distracted again
Found a plan, when you were here
Don't need to plan, just live the moment,
Teach me O Lord, to love again,
It comes so easily, when it is you
And you are you, when I am me
So now we know the way to be.
