lyrics

Moved by nothing, unable to laugh, unable to cry,
unable to feel, unable to love, and never caring why.
In my utter lack of taste, as I’ve lost my saltiness.
Adrift in seas of grace, I still hold to my loneliness.
I cling tight to my depression, it digs in as a slow knife.
As I grow absent from my friends, my family and my wife.
Never patient, never giving, never helping those in need.
Part of the selfish nation, taught only want and only greed.
And to the homeless man from whom I choose to divert my vision.
I know God speaks everyday, whether or not I choose to listen.
Make room, my heart is not dead, no it’s only sleeping.
Make room, my heart is not dead, no it’s only sleeping.
We meander on, one day to the next.
Why go on living, with a hole in your chest?
I run from your eye, I run at first glance.
You played the flute, but I, too self-absorbed to dance.
I, the king of nothing, see only in black.
With a hardened heart, we slowly drift apart.
I sing out of tune, my spirit grows cold.
With a hardened heart, we slowly drift apart.
We used to be together, we used to walk as friends.
With a hardened heart, we slowly drift apart.
I used to seek you out. I used to listen.
With a hardened heart, we slowly drift apart.
Undo my bitterness, undo my cynicism.
Undo my hardened heart, in the grace that you impart.
Undo my hatred, undo my anger.
Undo my hardened heart, in the love that you impart.
Undo my neglect, undo my contempt.
Undo my hardened heart, in the mercy you impart.
Undo my apathy, undo my malaise.
Undo my hardened heart, in the love that you impart.
I give you my everything, I pray it be my all.
Your heart I would desire most, Now Jesus, draw me close.
Draw me close. Draw me close.
Draw me close. Draw me close.
