To Know You

Album: Wide Eyed (1998)
  • It?s well past midnight
    And I'm awake with questions that won't
    Wait for daylight
    Separating fact from my imaginary fiction
    On this shelf of my conviction
    I need to find a place
    Where You and I come face to face

    Thomas needed
    Proof that You had really risen
    Undefeated when he placed his fingers
    Where the nails once broke Your skin
    Did his faith finally begin?
    I've lied if I've denied
    The common ground I've shared with him

    And I, I really want to know You
    I want to make each day
    A different way that I can show You how
    I really want to love You
    Be patient with my doubt
    I'm just tryin? to figure out Your will
    And I really want to know You still

    Nicodemus could not understand how
    You could truly free us
    He struggled with the image
    Of a grown man born again
    We might have been good friends
    'Cause sometimes I still question too
    How easily we come to You

    But I, I really want to know You
    I want to make each day
    A different way that I can show You how
    I really want to love You
    Be patient with my doubt
    I'm just tryin? to figure out Your will
    And I really want to know You still

    No more camping on the porch of indecision
    No more sleeping under stars of apathy
    And it might be easier to dream
    But dreamin's not for me

    And I, I really want to know You
    I want to make each day
    A different way that I can show You how
    I really want to love You
    Be patient with my doubt
    I'm just tryin? to figure out Your will
    And I really want to know You still

    I want to know you
    I really want to know you
    Hey yeah, hey yeah
    I really want to know you
    I really want to know you
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
