The Line

I wrote this song during a difficult time in my life. In going through some older things I’ve written, I’ve battled with whether or not to share. Some things I wrote thinking I’d be the only one to ever see them, but I’ve had so many spiritual nudges in the writing realm lately. This was the first (and only, so far) piece that I actually wrote as a song. I have no music for it as I have no talent in that area, but one day I’d love to have it set to music. Be gentle, it’s not only my first song, it was also intensely personal. 

 

I gave myself to you, body and soul,

Not realizing that you were not whole.

The distance between us is wider still,

And I wonder “Can we be healed?”

 

Weary of trying,

Sick of the lying.

It’s not in the past,

How long can we last?

The tears that I shed,

A love that feels dead.

How can I go on?

A line must be drawn.

 

Take a peek in the corners of my mind,

It is love in spite of pain that you find.

Your guilt tells you lies and pulls you away,

Just turn back to God, your demons He’ll slay.

 

Weary of trying,

Sick of the lying.

It’s not in the past,

How long can we last?

The tears that I shed,

A love that feels dead.

How can I go on?

A line must be drawn.

 

I long for true love,

Based on God above.

Not a cesspool of lies,

Less lows and more highs.

 

With Christ inside you’ll find power to fight.

Step out of darkness and into His light.

Only in His strength can we move past this.

A love based on His you don’t want to miss.

 

Weary of trying,

Sick of the lying.

It’s not in the past,

How long can we last?

The tears that I shed,

A love that feels dead.

How can I go on?

A line must be drawn.

 

What side will you be on?

What side will you be on?
