i can't protect you from what may come
but i can promise i'll love you through it
it's not something you can throw or
or predict
or calculate
what will happen, what will become of this...

...all i know is that my eyes have seen the glory
of the coming of the Lord.

i have scenes in my mind
of what should, could be
and with my fear
i press towards
these impossible...

why won't you press with me
with our force combined
we'll press harder
and perhaps both make it to
that day

The Worth of a Man

of my visit to see him

But I went there.
And the worse thing that you could do to me was nothing.
And now the worse thing that you can do to me is nothing.
If it were a power play,
If you were but constrained,
If you had words or deed that you would render,
It is too late
2010 was the deciding year.

And please don't frown upon me now,
Or my actions
To preserve my peace.
There are plenty of girls to pursue and cheat.
Is this all I feared?

Yesterday a day was coming when we would be together.
Tomorrow that day will never come.
I hope you understand.
Your wealth and riches lied in your smile and helping hand.
Thousands later you'll understand.

The worth of a man.
