Well I first met Samuel on a college campus
he was wearing a brown button up shirt
and brown rope sandals
and he told me that God loved me
even when I didn't obey my parents
or wasn't mindful of all His other commandments
like not putting Him first
or being covetous of my neighbors stuff
And I ain't never heard this before
so I said,
"Hey! What for what did God love me so for no reason more?"
And he looked deep into my eyeballs
pass my iris and vessels
through my heart
and pass various channels
and he ended in my soul
and he didn't say a word
because he didn't have to
deep down inside
I just knew

And I found the love I have for a girl
for no obvious reason
Though we're apart my love just grows with every season
For the first time I held a newborn baby in my arms
saw her little heart beat
felt her little fingers and little toes
or that time when I was walking alone through the woods
and I saw a brown bear all shaken and shaggy
or the love I have for my father
even though he gave me every reason to hate him
or the first time I flew in an airplane
it was a religious experience
or the first time I saw a cactus in Arizona
it was a religious experience
or that time when I was in Sweden
havin Swedish meatballs
at my friends Vick's house
pretending to read Swedish to his little daughter
with blond hair and blue eyes
a story about a bear named Bossy
she just laughed and she laughed
over and over again in Swedish

Samuel kept talking
people kept walking and bawkin
and their curious stalkin
like hungry wolves with no legs
but they're too proud to hang their heads and beg
but they don't see that they don't have to
God wants to
he wants to pour out his love on us
until our hands are full
and our ragin minds cool

my love is a raisin
and God's is a pumpkin
or a cantaloupe
or a watermelon
or a really big something
and I want to eat it

yeah I want to be loved
for no other reason at all except that I am
all my quirks and my wrongs and my insecurities
all my passions
my better habits and abilities

Adam and Eve were both naked
and bore their soles and bodies for one another
and they were accept
I want to be naked too
yeah let's all get naked
I want to be naked with all of you

there is a fear between us and beneath
my heart is a drawbridge
I'll lower it down
so you can come in and meet me
and we can eat and drink some tea
