  cry of the wounded hunter

the mark of a Christian is observable love.
- Francis Schaeffer

love is something I got to be able to see;
talking about it donít do too much for me
     cause most of what I see people do
     donít match up with their words.

love is something I got to be able to feel;
someone I can touch something I know is real
     but people keep their distance these days
     they donít get too close.

love is something I got to be able to share
cause liviní life alone just leads to doubt and despair,
     and sometimes Iíve been so alone ...
     so empty inside.

people who need love - sometimes we wear a disguise
so that when weíre in a crowd no-one will recognize
     how desperately our hearts hunger for
     a love we donít deserve.

just as I am with only one plea ...
a love I can see.
