  • Have you listed all the times you've tried
    Do you call on all your alibis
    When somebody asks the question why are you hiding

    Did you feel the pull, did you hear a call
    Did you take a chance and lose it all
    Do you fear there's no collateral left for trying

    [Chorus]
    Friend I know your heart is raw
    But love is still a worthy cause
    Picking up and pressing on
    Oh love is still a worthy cause
    It's the touch that starts the thaw
    Love is still a worthy cause
    Or the word that breaks the pause
    Love

    In the midst of passing bravery
    In the face of our own injury
    It's the constant generosity of grace

    It's the beauty in the tales we tell
    It's the pushing through and ending well
    And finding strength to give ourselves away

    [Chorus]

    I love because he loved me
    When I had nothing
    I love because he loved me
    When I had nothing
    I love because he loved me
    When I had nothing

    [Chorus]

    It's the beauty in the tales we tell
    It's the pushing through and ending well
    And finding strength to give ourselves away
