From the recording Every Road
reflecting my fascination with psychology
Can the name of Jesus roll off of your tongue like an angels song that's never been sung?
Can anybody call you their own?
Do you hope to die with your eyes open wide and your friends and family gathered by your side
or would you prefer to be alone?
Everybody I know trying to hide something that already shows
Everything that they've been through can be seen in all they say and all they do
Will you not listen to a single thing that's sung by a man who just can't sing
even if his heart is open wide?
Did you sit right there upon that fence and keep yourself at a safe distance
when they tried to make you take sides?
Remember when you were small, oh the wonder of it all
Every day a little Christmas morning
But now the daily grind takes up all your time
Don't you forget just who you are
Did you think that I was going to sing this verse real sweet to you and maybe break the curse of shadow that's been draped across your soul?
Well maybe I will but even then, still, you gotta believe that the sum of the parts does not equal the whole
Everybody I know
No use in hiding
Might as well speak your mind
Show your feelings
Cuz we all know
Everybody already knows
