lyrics

To Know You
I have been broken down and been lifted up
And then turned around
I have been set aside and marginalized
And then recognized
I have lived on the ropes unable to cope
And hoped against hope
Now I’ve been through it all
I’m making a choice
I do resolve
To know you
To know you
To know you is my one desire
I’ve been so short of sleep
Just holding my head up down in the deep
I’ve been unable to speak
For joy I’ve been weak well acquainted with grief
I’ve been caught in routine
Been kind and been mean through all that I’ve seen
Through the height and the depth the worst and the best
I make my request
To know you
To know you
To know you is my one desire
No corner hides from you
All I think and say and do is constantly in view
Soul and circumstance laid bare
Under a bright and burning stare
I’m in the shadow of a beautiful mystery
To know you
To know you
To know you is my one desire
