Danny and I
Spent another late night over pancakes
we talked about soccer
And how every man’s just the same
We made speculation
On the who’s and the when’s of our futures
And how everyone’s lonely
But still we just couldn’t complain
And how we just hate being alone
Could I have missed my only chance
And now I’m just wasting my time
By lookin’ around
But you know I know better
I’m not gonna worry about nothing
Cause if the birds and the flowers survive
Then I’ll make it okay.
and given a chance and a rock
see which one breaks a window
and see which one keeps me up all night and into the day.
Because I’m so scared of being alone
That I forget what house i live in
and it’s not my job to wait by the phone
For her to call
this day’s been crazy
But everything’s happened on schedule
from the rain and the cold
To the drink that I spilled on my shirt
‘Cause You knew how You’d save me
before I fell dead in the garden
And You knew this day
long before You made me outta dirt.
And You know the plans that You have for me
And You can’t plan the end and not plan the means
And so I suppose I just need some peace,
Just to get me to sleep.
Jesus said, “I am leaving you with a gift–peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give isn’t like the peace the world gives. So don’t be troubled or afraid. Remember what I told you: I am going away, but I will come back to you again. If you really love me, you will be very happy for me, because now I can go to the Father, who is greater than I am. I have told you these things before they happen so that you will believe when they do happen.
“I don’t have much more time to talk to you, because the prince of this world approaches. He has no power over me, but I will do what the Father requires of me, so that the world will know that I love the Father. Come, let’s be going.
John 14:27-30 nlt
