About Writing a Song

This is what I wanna sound like, a woman in love so you can relate, but this is what it feels like. 
Almost there but insecure till it breaks into a million little pieces.

Lucky you created me, lucky you created me. 
What’s wrong with a little boredom, you were made for eternity, I just wanna tell you the truth. 
And the truth is love it’s no coincidence. 
Then I get a little upset, tell you why a little later, couldn’t tell you why my head’s so comforting.

In comes our God, bucket full of graces, loves me in my weakness,
 perfectly, sacrificially, unconditionally, infinitely, eternally
. This is my prayer, that I may act on your behalf

Love is patient, love is 18 years patient with me and he’s still going

Toys

Child wants the latest toy, and I want the latest craze. 
Child wants what he can’t understand will hurt him, and I want the TV on all day
. Give me fast exciting pleasuring entertaining anything.

I think it works, I think it works, but they’re just toys, they’re just toys. 
I think it works, I think it works, but they’re just toys, they’re just toys.

Parent knows better, and out God knows better
. It will fade to be replaced to face to be replaced but things aren’t getting better, only advancing in their foolish pleasure. 
Give me fast exciting pleasuring entertaining anything.

When you escape the city, don’t take the city with you
. When you escape the city, don’t take the city with you

Homesick

I’ve been walking these streets 21 years they don’t change though I change for it
. And I want you as my first choice before my last resort.

What a beautiful invitation from the infinite to the infant
. And even though I look in other places after finding you The offer still stands.

Doing your own thing as virtue underneath can hurt you.

I don’t really understand myself,
I wanna do the right thing but I don’t. Instead I do the very thing I hate.

Thank you for not expiring on me. Thank you for loving me thoroughly.

Proof Of Purchase

Break on through the madness and this crazy talk, crazy talk,
Cause prayer is not a catalog, it’s an encounter, an encounter
. And you’re the proof of purchase and now I belong, I belong to you.

I do not have custody over my emotions I am homeless. 
Like a sheep without a shepherd I’m harassed and helpless
. Wasted with hunger I take candy from a stranger. 
Why yes I am lost thanks for asking, sure I could go for more. 
But when I learn that he’s been tricking me, oh he says he’s just kidding. 
Cause I’m striving after wind and I thought that it would fill me
. But I swallowed air and I need you to burp me
. Cause I’m on my hands and knees, only now do I see 
the author who wrote me came into the story.

All right this time I’ve got it thanks for showing me the way to go about it
. Oh I’ve relied on my soul instead of soul itself who emptied himself freak out. 
I was lost and was found, locked in and let out, why doesn’t this pattern stick out to me
. If I don’t know my own identity, who then will identify me
. Cause I’m striving after wind and I thought that it would fill me
. But I swallowed air and I need you to burp me
, cause I’m on my hands and knees, only now do I see
 the author who wrote me came into the story

Faustina

I seem to be complicating, waiting by mistaking it for keeping busy
. Tell me to sit still or I’ll refill.

Truth wears a crown of thorns, so make me uncomfortable for you.

If I can’t afford to pay for my biggest mistakes then the one who spots me must be greater, for me my God is sold out.

Truth wears a crown of thorns, so make me uncomfortable for you.

You have chosen miserable me to be your betrothed
, you have chosen miserable me to be your betrothed.

Sick with love

I’ve been cheating on my lover again
, I’ve been cheating on my lover again.

Sustain me Lord, Sustain me Lord. 
For I am sick with love, sick with love, sick with love.

I sought him whom my soul loves. 
I sought him and found him not
. And your praise doesn’t depend on how I feel yeah yeah yeah.

How long must I wait for the one who loved me first? 
How strong must my yearning be to receive?
 My lover belongs to me and I to him. 
He says come for see the winter has past the rains are over and gone.

Treasure

Don’t lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, they’ll ruse and you’ll consume each other
. Lay up for yourselves treasure in heaven.

For where your treasure is there will your heart be also.

And which of you by being anxious can add to your lifespan your father knows you need these things.

Heavenly physician

Is shame my penance? Cause it won’t subside
. I know you overcome everything, but this is my crime, my crime.

Stop saying you’re too busy for solitude. 
Stop saying you’re too busy for solitude.

True and fruitful vine, blood outpoured 
like juice from grapes in a wine press, hide me in thy sores, thy sores.

Stop saying you’re too busy for solitude
. Stop saying you’re too busy for me.

So glad you’re inexhaustible, cause only you can forgive this broken heart time and time again. 
They told me time would heal the cause,. Heavenly physician, heal our wounds with yours, heal our wounds with yours, 
heavenly physician, heal our wounds with yours, heal our wounds with yours, ohh.

Missing Parts

Thought I was born with Missing Parts and everyone else got a head start. 
But when I caught up all I could figure, was I was a robot with a broken trigger.

The Devil picks my scabs and I let him explore, so I don’t wanna be God anymore. 
My yes is yours to defend, when will the chain reaction end?

Brain washed by opinion, I’m weeping at the thought that the faults all mine. 
Pop-up’s blocked but I’m still dealing with the afterthought of this ancient feeling.

I’m free because you made it so.

And I remember that you were hated first.

Wait

Been singing wrong for too long, now I’ve gotta make some music of this noise. 
No use looking to be found by those who are lost.
You eliminate the form of escape to help you concentrate. We must abandon ourselves to be filled up.
There will be a search party for all of those looking in the wrong scene. No use looking to be found by those who are lost.

How? 
How?

I don’t wanna wait I’m too impatient mainly. 
But Lord if you ask of me I will wait for thee.
