The Heart Of The Matter

In the style of

Debby Boone

Lyrics

old friend
when did it happen
when did your eyes
become dazzled by
the world

instead of lit up
by his light
choices too
many voices

was there one
too many battles
so you gave up
on the fight

was your love for
him a decision of
the mind
to be changed in time

was it really not
a committed walk
but rather a display
of religious talk

i need to know
because i love
you so

if you really knew him
the way that i knew him
you would never
walk away

if you truly
understood
what his love was
all about

you would never
shut him out

all this talk of jesus
working in our lives
is nothing more than
childish chatter

if we don't allow
him past the mind
to penetrate with
death

into the heart
of the matter
into the heart
of the matter

old friend
how did it happen
how did you take all
the life he had to give

and then let
your praises die
confusion rising
delusion

did you give your
heart to business
and never question
why

when you discovered
that from you he
wanted more
did you close the door

did you decide to
do it on your own
and then withdraw
to walk alone

i need to know
because i love
you so

if you really knew
him the way that
i knew him

you would never
walk away
if you truly
understood what

his love was
all about
you would never
shut him out

all this talk of jesus
working in our lives
is nothing more than
childish chatter

if we don't allow
him past the mind
to penetrate with
death into

the heart of
the matter
into the heart
of the matter

how do spiritual
eyes go blind
when does deception
infiltrate the mind

i know it's hard
to comprehend
but the choice is
still yours old friend

don't let it happen

if you knew him the
way that i knew him
you would never
walk away

if you truly understood
what his love was
all about

you would never
shut him out

all this talk of jesus
working in our lives
is nothing more than
childish chatter

if we don't allow
him past the mind
to penetrate with death

into the
heart of the matter

into the heart
of the matter
into the heart
of the matter
