You and I

I came up with this New Year's Eve and decided to turn it into a song. I'll record it soon. I am working really hard of being part of the world again. My heart hurts so bad I cry myself to sleep but there is always God. Always God. As badly as I hurt and want out, I know that if I turn away from God, I truly will be lonely with nothing.

You and I

In this hollow world full of fame and gold. Sitting there beyond my grasp, Fortunes, wealth untold. Should I sell my heart for what I feel I'm due? Is it worth the price I'd pay To turn away from You?

All I’ve ever known, is hunger in my soul. No matter what I reached out for Came back an empty hole. But now I see on what I truly can rely. When wheat and chafe are in the wind, There's only You and I.

If every prayer I prayed, and every wish came true. And everywhere I plied my hand Was put in place by You. There’s still an emptiness I’m sure that I would know. Simply cause I could not touch Or see Your face aglow.

There is only You, and there is only I. Someday my dreams that never lived Are simply going to die. But when that day arrives, as it surely will. My earthly heart will soar away On angel's wings to You.

I'm wondering if you've ever read a book called "I and Thou" by Martin Buber. In it, he describes the difference between "I, It" relationship and "I, You(Thou)" relationship.

Anyways, that's what your post reminded me of.

Nice to make your acquaintance, btw.
