words and music by michael billingsley

lyrics

Sat beneath a waterfall
Drew your picture on the wall
Made believe the walls could talk
And they could see inside your thoughts

But they couldn’t see
What you saw in me
They couldn’t see the me you always thought I’d be
There on the edge
Have I gone insane?
Are you so ashamed
To share this name?

Everybody stopped and stared
Wondering what had come of me
There you stood in front of me
Beautiful as one could be

But I couldn’t breathe
As I watched you weep
Last night I dreamed that my last night was gone
And there in the bed
Waking I prayed
Next to you I laid
I whispered your name

When I was in heaven, I was thinking all along
That I’d write this song, for you

And when my ship went down I couldn’t find the radio
But then your bedroom light lit, leading me back home
And as the wheels went turning, crashing off the road we’re on
I felt your arm securely steering me awake again

My life belongs to God
But my love belongs to you
