Ready to Listen
(Thurs. April 28, 2005)

The words I speak
Seem to fall on deaf ears
And as a tear slides down my cheek
I know that it hasn’t been in vain
Therefore, I feel no shame
Give me the ability to
Bring close a few

(ch)
If they’re not ready to listen
I’ll wait my turn
And then slowly start again
But if they’re not ready to listen
I’ll wait patiently
Till they are

I need to know if this is right
‘Cause I walk by faith, not sight
Life only lasts for so long
So I say live it, live it well
I need guidance to get me thru
Maybe one life will turn new
And bring close a few

(ch)

Please don’t listen to the words I say
But the one who speaks thru me, I pray
Maybe one day you’ll see
Maybe one day you won’t
I know I’ve learned along the way
If you aren’t ready to listen
I’ll wait for if your when you are
If or when you are
