Only You

February 1, 2021

Verse 1

I could go from the mountains to the sea
I could run from the people plaguing me
But I can't run from your everlasting love
I can't run from my Father up above.

Verse 2

I am surrounded by the slaying words of hate
I am surrounded by people cruel and irate
But I am surrounded by a God who sees all
I am surrounded by a love that will never fall

Chorus

Only you, Father
Only you, Daddy
Only you can dry my tears
Only you destroy my fears
Only you, Father
Only you, Daddy
Only you can take my pain
Only you bring sun through rain

Only you

Verse 3

I do not speak because they do not hear
I stay silent, trapped by the fear
But Father, you listen and you speak
Father, you hold me when my soul is weak

Verse 4

I could fall from this heavy load
I could stumble at end of road
But you support me and hold me high
You hear my every desperate cry

Chorus

Bridge
Because every day
Only you see me, Father
You won't go away
You're always beside me, Father
And when I'm all alone
You carry me home
Only you
Only you, O father

Chorus
Yup, this breaks every rule of song and rhythm but it is what it is. Probably not even gonna submit it anyway.

    I love this so much. Hello friend I love your work. This song for some reason reminds me of Truth be told by matthew west. If you have not heard it I totally recommend.

    Wow. This is really amazing and sweet. And for your "rhythm rule-breaking" you could create a new type of music- one that for each line it has a different rhythm! Keep on writing!
