Maybe I’ll Write a Thousand Words

Maybe I’ll Write a Thousand Words (A Picture of Gary and Jesus)
—————————————————————————————-

i’m looking at a picture of you, of you smiling with me
and i will write about how happy i am to be friends with you
and i will write about how much greater i am from knowing you
and i will write to you all that this picture means to me

maybe i’ll write a thousand words for you
to thank you for what you’ve done, thank you for what you’ve done
maybe i’ll write a thousand words for you
for you to read and to see, to see all that you mean to me

i’m looking at a picture of you, praying to the Savior
and i will write to you about how much it meant to me
and i will write to you about the greatness of your faith
and i will write about all that this picture means to me

maybe i’ll write a thousand words for you
to thank you for what you’ve done, thank you for what you’ve done
maybe i’ll write a thousand words for you
for you to read and to see, to see all that you mean to me

and now i’m looking at a picture of You, and You’re dying on a cross for me
and i could write about everything You’ve done for me, only in eternity
and i could count out all the ways You’ve served me, only with infinite
and i want to sing about all that this picture means to me in eternity

i will write a thousand words for You
to thank you for what you’ve done, thank you for what you’ve done
i will sing a thousand words for You
for you to hear and to see, to see all that you mean to me, Jesus

You mean everything to me
Jesus, all my words are for You
You mean everything to me
Jesus, all my words are for You
You mean everything to me, Jesus

Joy

Joy
—–

how long have i known you, but still we don’t know each other
how long has it been from the first time i said your name
oh.. how long until the last time i’ll say it..
on the day i pour out my heart through my tears, you’re there
you’re there in my tears, in my soul, but yet also my joy

our words may have been few, but i didn’t have words to say
our words may not have been deep, but i want that to change
only.. if only i had been there through the tears and trials
turn the time back, and i wouldn’t have missed it for the world
to be there with you, for you, and fill your tears with joy

look out the window, come here next to me now
you can see what’s coming to take us away, i know it
but.. i don’t want to leave you without saying hello
keep the window closed, the wind is turning fiery cold
be here in my tears, in my soul, please hold me in joy

how long have i known you, but when will we love each other
how long will it be until we fly away with all the rest
me, i want to be here for you until that day
please come to me, or just don’t back away, i am here
am i there in your tears, in your soul, and can i be your joy?

Can We Talk?

Can We Talk?
——————-

arriving just on time, i walk inside and see you there
nothing comes when i say hello, no glance from your eyes
you just sit there so alone, without even me to talk to
what is it that keeps us so far from each other
and why can’t we talk about our lives together?

when we get to Heaven, can i see your face?
when we get to Heaven, can we talk for hours as friends
and when we get to Heaven, will we be able to get past this silence between us
and will you smile at me, finally, only if we’re in Heaven?

attempted conversation goes from hopeful to hopeless tonight
what happened here between us that we just can’t get past?
i don’t know what you’re thinking or why we’re stuck in these
cages i didn’t see coming when we used to be friends
oh, the day we used to be friends didn’t last forever…

when we get to Heaven, can i see your face
when we get to Heaven, can we talk for hours as friends
and when we get to Heaven, will we be able to get past this silence between us
and will you smile at me, finally, only if we’re in Heaven?

because how can we talk there if we can’t talk here
and how can this be, why can’t you look at me
what happened that night, the night we fell away
and no, no more of this, no, we need to talk it over
and i need your smile to tell me it’s ok, because we can’t wait until Heaven.

when we get to Heaven, i want to see your face
and when we get there, i want to talk with you for hours!
when we get to Heaven, i want to sing with you, sing our songs loud!
and i want to smile at you, my friend, before we get to Heaven
please, let’s smile at each other before we get to Heaven
