09. The Only

Riley Armstrong
by Riley Armstrong



 

HE CAME FOR THE LOST AND LONELY
HE CAME FOR THE BROKEN HEARTED

READY OR NOT HE CAME
HE CAME FOR THE WOUNDED SOLDIER
HE CAME FOR THE CYNICAL SON

READY OR NOT HE CAME
THAT THEY MIGHT KNOW HIM FOR WHO HE WAS
AND SEE THE HOPE THAT SATURATES HIS CAUSE

INSIDE THEY WANT TO KNOW
CAUSE THE ONLY SONG THEY WANT TO HEAR IS LOVE
CAUSE THE NOTES THEY TRY TO PLAY HAVE BEEN LEFT OUT

HE CAME FOR THE BRUISED AND BATTERED
HE CAME FOR THOSE FORGOTTEN
READY OR NOT HE CAME
HE CAME FOR THE TROUBLED FAMILY
HE CAME FOR THE HUNGRY LITTLE GIRL.

THAT THEY MIGHT KNOW HIM FOR WHO HE WAS
AND SEE THE HOPE THAT SATURATES HIS CAUSE
CAUSE THE ONLY SONG THEY WANT TO HEAR IS LOVE
CAUSE THE NOTES THEY TRY TO PLAY HAVE BEEN LEFT OUT
AND THE ONLY SONG THEY WANT TO SING IS LOVE
LIFE'S ALWAYS TAKING MORE FROM THEM THAN IT GIVES OUT.

AND I'VE NEVER BEEN SO AWARE OF WHAT HE DID FOR ME
IT HIT HOME WITH ME TODAY
WHAT HE DID FOR US, WILL IT HIT HOME WITH US
MAKE THE LIFE WE LIVE TO FADE AWAY
THAT THEY MIGHT KNOW TO SEE
THAT ONLY HE CAN SING
THE SONG OF LOVE THAT SATURATES.

Written by Riley Armstrong, Flicker U.S.A. Publishing (BMI)

"The Only was written while people watching at a mall in Edmonton, AB." - Riley Armstrong
