lyrics

Lord My hearts about as hard and cold as plaster
Splattered on a wall with glass thats shattered
The past hangs of the cracks like flags with banners

And so / I’ve got nowhere to hide it’s plain to see it
I’ve got no heart to have but you said you’d keep it
But aint too much to love so what’s your reason?


HOOK
1Lord I could use your loving now / In ways that only you know how / Come into my heart heal me now
2 Lord I could be more loving now / Problem is I don’t know how
Teach me how to love I don’t know how / Come into my heart fill me now

Before I let the Lord find me I used to think that love was an emotion
‘fore I saw the unfailing devotion / Of Jesus on the cross
In first Corinthians 13 I can see / It’s not just a feeling
When Jesus wounds were ripped open and peeling / He did it for my healing

The Bible tells me plainly, no mistaking, God is love
And I know some folks don’t call themselves Christians / / But they’re more like Him than me
/ And these things just blow my mind
How-we-can-even wear that cross necklace sign / But be so resigned / I’m / crying

HOOK

/ I got a spot in my heart for pop tarts / Act real sweet but inside are impostors
They don’t really seek to nourish you longterm / Perform mostly for the show like pop stars
I’m talking this way ‘cus I know I’m not harsh / I talk jargon far as my heart I talk sparse
Frustrated when folk talk and drag on even though I’m the one who asked what’s going on
/ And that’s wrong / I know that now took a while had fail out and turn around took a
Loud voice ringing my ear saying you a jerk No amount a works gonna take away the hurt
/ Started to laugh cus I felt like dirt / when God bent down and made me out of the ground
So when saw when I saw my heart chipping like stone makes sense that / only He can make it whole
