You All Know the Ending

This is a song I wrote sitting in ye olde dorm room at Bryan
College.  The guitar portion came first, and I sang my mind to
it.  I’m to play it for a friend’s school project sometime soon, but
strangely I find it matches my heart at the moment…do old feelings
really revisit us?

you all know the ending

you all know where this began

so why are you just

sitting

in the middle

wondering where I Am?

you don’t know you’re running

you just know you’re running fast

but when will you stop

dreaming

all the little

Daydreams of your past?

for only I know the plans that I have for you

your vision comes clear when seen through the Rood

but you fall away

as you turn

your

gaze

your own ways

when will you look and see I Am good?

you know all the answers

but your words are all too small

so when will you stop

speaking

and just listen

hear My whispered call

all of the expectations you’ve made for things

trade for assurance I gave in My blood

there’s freedom for feet to dance

when the day

turns

grey

and lonely

when will you live knowing I Am good?

you all know the ending

you all know where this began

so why are you just

sitting

in the middle

wondering where I Am?

  6. I like it.  I would like to hear the melody that goes with it, though.  And, yes, I think old feelings do revisit us.

    I love that song!  I need to bust out that CD again sometime soon, even though past listens have made me nostalgic.

    There are not words… If the music behind it is as good as the lyrics…

    i think old feelings definitely do revisit us. especially with music.
    i’d love to hear this. the questions in the song are often in my mind as well. our God is so beautiful and mysterious – it’s easy to allow His mystery to make Him invisible. i think people all too often close their eyes to beauty: we drive to and from work without noticing or appreciating the landscape; walk to and from our cars without looking at the violets that have sprouted by the doorstep; or speak to a child without seeing the innocent little light that shines out from his eyes… and its just that easy to make Him invisible to us as well. sad. its not Him that strays, its us. and then we cry out for Him.
    and you are right – i was an english major, with emphasis in creative writing  : )
