about

Inspired by the relationship between Mack and God in a book called The Shack, by Wm. Paul Young.

lyrics

Come out of the water
Come out of the blue
Let me hold my child
There's nothing more for you to do

That's not what we fought for
Not the scene we drew
Well you scream and you fight but I still love you

I Am
The First and the Last
I am expansive
And I'm always waiting for you to come home
I Am

Who told you a fable (pleasure and pain to a pointless cause)?
You're still young and able
But you carry yourself as an overcome force

I Am
The First and the Last
Incongruity does not live in me
One day when all will see:
I AM

I wait on the horizon
And I'm blazing in your way
I can see the embers rising
And I long to hear you say:

"Step in - set in motion and come back
Step in - set in motion and come back
Step in - set in motion and come back
Step in - set in motion and come back"

I'm reaching out my arms here to meet you
Hold you where you are
I'm satisfied in all your faults and your failings
I loved you from the start

I'm reaching out my arms here to meet you
Hold you where you are
I'm satisfied in all your faults and your failings
I loved you from the start

I'm reaching out my arms here to meet you
Hold you where you are
I'm satisfied in all your faults and your failings
I loved you from the start

I'm reaching out my arms here to meet you
Hold you where you are
I'm satisfied in all your faults and your failings
I loved you from the start
