Hey you
The world sees right through where you tore at the seams
The pale beneath it gleams and gleams
And shines like light when you hold it just right
But inside you'll see
An inscription reads like profanity

Give it away!

Gold
More precious than gold
You measured it, and then you felt you
You fell through all the floors you left below
Below it's cold
But how could One who came to save you ever leave you or forsake you?

But now you give it away!

Want you
Need you
Love to lie to you
I don't want you when I need you
When I need you, I don't

I spooned my soul
It measured well
Despite the words and songs of my youth
I never knew that one could be so unwhole
This world rots your bones
But there's One who comes in kindness
Won't you pull off your blindness?

Want you
Need you
Love to lie to you
I don't want you when I need you
When I need you, I don't need to want you
Need you
Love to
I couldn't lie to you
I wouldn't lie to you

Made a wish on a falling star
It was a satellite drifting on the night side
Made a wish on a satellite
They put it there to watch over you
But don't be fooled
It's not forever
A satellite

Want no regrets
No secrets
Whispers in the night
