I see your eyes that twinkle when I arrive, but your soul looks weary of the pain.
I hear your talk of life and new beginnings, yet beneath the surface bubbles the regret and tears you trade for shame.
I listen to your words on the air sounding light and cheerful, but your voice sounds so tired.
His love is so much bigger than those accusations of the liar.
I watch as you move along the road, changing your hair, your tone and your style.
I pick up on the nuances in the atmosphere, you are attempting to stay a longer while.
I refuse to demand you live in that past love of muck and mire.
His love is so much bigger than those accusations to the liar.
Can I ever convince you of His faithfulness and healing?
Can I ever persuade you to believe it was my heart He was sealing?
I pray one day you will find the truth that lies within me.
Regardless of all the broken hearts, I will love you for all eternity.
