11. The Gods Of Men (Extended Version)

Love Beyond Reason
by Randy Stonehill



 

I used to dream of being famous
Wanted my name to be a household word
Well I thought that it would thrill me
Then I saw that it could kill me
Now it strikes me as a little absurd

And I used to dream of being Don Juan
Of having all these pretty girls on the line
It made a shambles of my life
So I found myself a wife
Who's a lover and a friend of mine

As the world keeps turning around
You either learn to bend with the Wind,
or it knocks you down
Turn your back on the gods of men
And the Lord who is true
Will give life back to you again

I used to dream of being a rich man
yeah, I swore I'd have it all someday
Once you taste it you will find
That it isn't worth a dime
Till you're free enough to give it away

And I used to dream of tasting vengeance
Wanted my enemies to crawl and sweat
Well my happiness was drained
From reliving all the pain
Now I'm learning to forgive and forget

As the world keeps turning around
You either learn to bend with the Wind,
or it knocks you down
Turn your back on the gods of men
And the Lord who is true
Will give life back to you again

I used to dream of being the wanderer
With just my sneakers and my old guitar
Well it got lonely right way
Now I'm happy just to play
With my daughter in my own backyard

And I used to dream of being a hero
Yeah, I told myself I'd never fall down
But I couldn't take the strain
And Jesus is the name
Of the only hero I've ever found

As the world keeps turning around
You either learn to bend with the Wind,
or it knocks you down
Turn your back on the gods of men
And the Lord who is true
Will give life back to you again
