From doubt to regret. From regret to pessimism. From pessimism to a glimpse into hope and possibility. Repeat cycle.

lyrics

VERSE 1:

I been running
Under a dim light
Maybe it's sunny
Maybe it's midnight

I been tryna to see my way
But it gets away from me
I been giving all my love to my daydreams

And I'll give it again
I'll give it again
I can see the end before me
I'll give it again

Giving it up
What do I lose
I can see the end before me
I see the end

See I been wondering,
what its been like
Maybe I'm missing something,
They told me to live right

And I been trying to hold on
To what you said is true
It's like I gave it what I had
Looking for you

And I'll give it again
I'll give it again
I can see the end before me
I'll give it again

Giving it up
What do I lose
I can see the end before me
I see the end

CHORUS:

So I'm sitting at the wishing well
Singing fill this whole world with wonder
So while I'm looking Imma wish you well
I hope you fill this cold world with summer


VERSE 2:

I keep on hearing we don’t worship no more
Pulpits are full, but the preaching is empty
Give the pulpits to fools, and they teach us to envy
Intellectual ascent, they’re teaching us plenty
I mean— I should clarify, see maybe I’m just terrified of where it looks like worship is headed
We get better promotion, but the churches are headless
This baby boomer decline leaves us searching for reverence and we don’t see it no more
That deep sense of sorrow, just regular doses of some weekend debauchery
And I aint talking Saturday prior, this Sabbath of liars
Turns to weekends of mockery
Whats ministry—Spirit’s presence or the Spirit of preference
The latter gets the energy
The ladder is the imagery, seek Him at the height or try to confine the fullness of His Person to a liturgy
That'll hit a nerve
No murders in the daytime
But shadows got the urge
That's your heart talking, you been looking for the good in the places that'll lie to you
In faces that'll lie to you
I keep telling myself that I'm gon learn- it'll be different tomorrow
By the time I'm done learning
I'm sick of tomorrow
Throw in all my chips and take a sip of the bottle and roll
But if I make it to my knees, it's almost like I can't move
And I don't want to,
Leaning on my crutches like who can I run to
The question is rhetorical So now I feel the answer as flames touch marrow, message from the oracle His gaze on the sparrow for the Angels to herald as tame as the carol

Yet as fierce as the whirlwind- redemption at a glance, find me in a trance...kinda like my chances
