THINGS SHE SAID

Here’s a song I wrote about my wife. The lyrics are from very personal conversations she and I have had over the last two years. I’ve watched her struggle with things in a very different way than I have, and I wanted her story to be told, because she is an incredible picture of God’s grace. These lines, some direct, some paraphrased, are things she has said.

Things She Said

V1

I remember better times

And these pictures serve as records from my less complicated life

But now the creases ’round my eyes

Tell stories of a different kind

Situations unforetold

Stripped me of the faith that I arrived in

Not a hope to hold

Just a complicated scheme to bring myself some rescue and relief

Sometimes it seems I’ve been forgotten

Sometimes it feels that way

My plans betray me in a moment

My circumstances, thieves

Chorus

Sometimes I cry at night

Eyes open towards the sky

Wondering if everything will ever turn out right

V2

I am tired, and I am worn

My hope shattered like a window, lying broken on the floor

And my faith’s a feeble thing

Choked by doubt that sprouted up like weeds

My head is telling me it’s over

My heart says hope’s not lost

I am an ever raging battle

Is this war worth the cost?

Chorus

Sometimes I cry at night

Eyes open towards the sky

Wondering if everything will ever turn out right

V3

I bear the scars of resolution

I wear them on my face

And though they tell a different story

They tell a tale of grace
