Song Lyrics

I don't usually post lyrics here anymore, but the lyrics to Relient K's song I Am Understood are just so good that it would be a disservice not to. I know people don't usually read when people post their poetry or song lyrics, but take the time to look these over. We all have times where we feel like God's not there for us, and this song captures that feeling beautifully.

"Sometimes it's embarrassing to talk to you,
To hold a conversation with the only one who sees right through
This version of myself
I try to hide behind;
I'll bury my face because my disgrace will leave me terrified.

And sometimes I'm so thankful for Your loyalty,
Your love, regardless of the mistakes I make, will spoil me
My confidence is, in a sense, a gift You've given me
And I'm satisfied to realize You're all I'll ever need.

You looked into my life
And never stopped,
And you're thinking all my thoughts;
You're so simple but so beautiful.
And you recite my words right back to me,
Before i even speak,
You let me know I am understood.

And sometimes I spend my time
Just trying to escape.
I work so hard, so desperately, in an attempt to create space
'Cause I want distance from the utmost important thing I know.
I see Your love, then turn my back, and beg for You to go

You looked into my life
And never stopped,
And you're thinking all my thoughts;
You're so simple but so beautiful.
And you recite my words right back to me,
Before i even speak,
You let me know I am understood.

You're the only one who understands completely.
You're the only one who knows me yet still loves completely.

And sometimes the place I'm at is at a loss for words,
If I think of something worthy, I know that it's already Yours.
And through the times I've faded and you've outlined me again
You've just patiently waited, to bring me back, and then

You looked into my life
And never stopped,
And you're thinking all my thoughts;
You're so simple but so beautiful.
And you recite my words right back to me,
Before i even speak,
You let me know I am understood."
