God I just want to heal wounds
The way the preacher stretches his tongue to talk about you
God I just want you to watch geese with me
So that I can grow to love the Hudson the way you do
I can love the way you do
say the way you do
Speak to the hearts of men
God I just want to forgive myself
God I remembered myself.
Lord I didn’t hate myself today and I was comfortable and warm.
God I made jokes today.
Lord I was comfortable and didn’t dislike myself.
God I just want to be kind
My heart I give to you to let me be kind
Let the world know that I will heal it if it asks.
There has been many people my heart has searched to heal
Sometimes I wonder if love is healing or healing is love
Sometimes I just want to press my hand onto somebody’s soul
feel their pain and snatch it away from them
God when I do, where does the pain go?
God why doesn’t the pain go?
God take their pain from me after I retrieve it
I am not a vessel to store tragedy
I am only trying to do the things you sent me here to do
God teach me so that I am able to teach
Speak me into the warmth of the world
Show me where the spikes are so that I may avoid them
Help me further Lord
I do not want to remain a tragedy
