No Place For Rest

lyrics

The moon just looked like another stoplight swayin' in the wind.
And your dark brown hair hides your face like your feelings hide within.
Because you know what I've been thinking and it's that same old thought again. Sometimes you must forget in order to love again, in order to trust again. Oh darling just hold my hand.

Trust that is built on sturdy ground never succumbs to doubt. But your trust I have built it on shifty sand because I just can't figure it out. 'Cause I don't know what you are thinking, so if you could just spell it out, and I will learn I'll change, just open your mouth. Just let the words run out. There's no need to shout.

The fox has its holes and the sparrow its nest but the Son of Man has no place to rest in this world, no place to lay his head (Matthew 8:20). And the ignorant in mind choose the shadow that's bent 'cause the Son of Man is no sacrament in their heads. No price to pay with death. No reason to relent. No sacrifice for them.

And I want to let him rest
Yes I want to pay my debt

(Sung in the background)
They say it's easy
They say it's hard
They say it's easy
They say it's easy
They say it's different
They say his love
They say it's everything
They say he loves us
They think he does
They say he loves us
They think he doesn't
They say he loves us
We know he does
They say he loves us
We know he does
