Joe Henry

God Only Knows

Darkness settles on the ground,
leaves the day stumbling blind.
Coming to a quiet close
and maybe just in time.

We've almost lost the heart to know
how to keep our best in mind
We've almost lost the heart to know...
how to keep our best in mind

Time has turned an angry face,
throws a dark eye back to see.
But what will pass for mercy now,
We'll practice unforgivingly

As if might and will make right
or either one could make us free
As if might and will make right
that either one could make us free

Lovers laugh and cross this way,
they're weaving out into the street.
It seems we never were so young
or it was never quite so sweet.

But the world is always beautiful
when its seen in full retreat..
The worst of life looks beautiful
as it slips away in full retreat..

Well God only knows that we can do,
no more or less than he'll allow..
Well God only knows that we mean well
and God knows that we just don't know how

But I try to be your light in love
and pray that is enough for now
Well I've tried to be your light in love
and I'll pray that is enough for now

    This song gives benediction to the love you share with anyone...on any level. Be their light, know what they can accept is indeed enough; and enough is as good as a feast.
