Found Wanting

GV started its WA tour 3 shows ago, and we've decided to debut some new material along the way, one song in particular keeps coming back to my mind thru the day, these are the words, they are for the ladies of Ohio from the retreat we did months ago. Right now its called 'Found Wanting'

lash, regret, retract the words
the toxic nature of this talk

healing fights with kind patience
and takes the knife right out the back

evidence of consequence
a great fear born of tragic sin

i'll leave the leaves and take your light
and clothe my nakedness

EVERYBODY IS FOUND WANTING
OF PERFECT LOVE
EVERYBODY IS FOUND WANTING
OF LOVE THAT WON'T FAIL

you take the blade
you stick it deep
you feel the sting
and watch the flow

your greatest fear
you won't bleed enough
to erase this haunting pain

Jesus took the nails
He took the cross
He took it on His back

you see His stripes
you can be healed
you can become innocent

EVERYBODY IS FOUND WANTING
OF PERFECT LOVE
EVERYBODY IS FOUND WANTING
OF LOVE THAT WON'T FAIL

dang...take it all the way to the original sin, why don't you! :p i love lyrics that don't spell everything out for ya (otherwise, what would be the beauty and mystery in that), yet aren't too "deep" so that people like me can relate and understand. bravo.
