"Greatest Wonder" as written by Mark M Weinberg and Unknown Writers....
I got some oil and some matches
You know I will do anything for you
So whether for light or for ashes
All of us burn for something
The greatest risk, the greatest wonder

Some of the time we are stolen
Most of us live our lives as thieves
So how could you know that I could be trusted
How could you know that I just know that I won't leave

Always waiting for someone to be sure
Always praying that we'll be ready for
The greatest wish, the going under
The greatest risk, the greatest wonder

You cannot give somebody joy
But you can find it by trying
You can't save someone from death
But you can love them while they're dying
Love them while they're dying

Always waiting for someone to be sure
Always praying that we'll be ready for
Yeah I'm ready, I'm ready
So give me something
The greatest wish the going under
The greatest risk the greatest wonder
The greatest risk the greatest wonder

    General CommentIt is about love, but not teenage love. It's about the sort of love where you would die for the other person, and do anything possible to make them happy for as long as possible. I always thought it was about a relationship/marriage where one of them has a terminal illness and is explaining to their partner that you can't save me, but you can love me, make me happy and make what I have left, the best time of my life.

    General CommentIt's about death. The love is for God. How do we reciprocate a love that he has for us when we have lived our lives as theives. When he say's always waiting for someone to be sure, always praying we'll be ready for. Throughout our life we are waiting for a reasurance that there is a God and afterlife. We are always praying that we'll be read for Death, which is the greatest Wonder.
