wordy wisdom: inspirational lyrics, pt 2

By virtue of its title, my brother declared this song as my theme. When I bought the CD in 2001 it was at a time when my answer to any question would often be, 'I don't know.' I did this for various reasons, but mostly as a way to avoid something I didn't want to talk about - either because I was still thinking it through or that I simply didn't feel like talking. It was an arbitrary labelling on my brother's part, but upon listening to the song (while of course reading along to the lyrics), I came to relate with what Mac Powell was saying, what he had written in some moment of spiritual doubt.

His words resonate within me now as much as they did then for the issue of salvation is an ever constant struggle. This song raises questions for me which are quite relevant to my faith journey - and I could only imagine with those of the spiritual positions each of us are in.

I Don't Know / Third Day // Come Together

cannot find the words to say i'm sorry;
don't know how to show You i was wrong.
i wasted all that You had given to me
and now i'm left with nothing and noone.

and i find
it's my fault -
i'm the only
one to blame
for the tears
and the pain.

well, i don't know what i can say -
or would it matter anyway -
'cause i don't know how You could still forgive me.
for all that i have put You through,
is there anything that i can do?
i would give my life to find Your mercy.

all my life has lead to this decision,
to return and ask You this one thing:
if i had one chance or if a million,
would it ever be enough for me

to explain
what i've done?
now i know that
i was wrong.
will You hold
me again?

well, I don't know what i can say -
or would it matter anyway -
cause i don't know how You could still forgive me.
for all that i have put You through,
is there anything that i can do?
i would give my life to find Your mercy.
what will it take until You forgive me?
i don't know . . .

i don't know.

and i find
it's my fault -
well, i'm the only
one to blame
for the tears
and the pain.

well, i don't know what i could say -
or would it matter anyway -
'cause i don't know how You could still forgive me.
for all that i have put You through
is there anything that i can do?
i would give my life to find Your mercy.
well, i don't know what i can say -
or would it matter anyway -
'cause i don't know how You could still forgive me.
for all that i have put You through
is there anything that i can do?
i would give my life to find Your mercy.
what will it take until You forgive me?
oh Lord, will i find that You have already?
i don't know . . .

i don't know.
i don't know.
i don't know . . .
