I got my axes mixed up…

Somewhere in between the yellow and the grey

Somewhere along the way

I got my axes mixed up

I thought i knew my constants…

Thought i understood that this life was the variable

But somewhere in between

I lost what i thought i had locked down…

Did i have it locked down?

I’ve been rambling and ranting about how You’re not… *whispers

Making sense no more

How You’re late…how You’re never here…how i think…

I think You should run this town but

I’m learning now that i had you mistaken for a genie in a bottle

…genie in a lamp that didn’t work no more

Your LOVE…Your Grace…Your LOVE

That’s my axis

That’s what this life flows to

That’s what this life is pitched on…not the other way round

*sigh

For the murmurs and the questions and the lists of things to do

Lists that trickle…lists that flow

Forgive me for being just what i run away from

Forgive me for using You to paint this tapestry without even the slightest clue of what the picture should be

I can’t promise not to end back here someday…

And for that i can only say i’m truly…truly sorry

For this heart deceives me…

This soul unlearns things faster than i wish it did

I got my axes mixed up…

Somewhere in between the yellow and the grey

Somewhere along the way

I got my axes mixed up

I thought i knew my constants…

Thought i understood that this life was the variable

But somewhere in between

I lost what i thought i had locked down…

Help me get there

Help me get You back
