06. International Love Song

Share The Well
by Caedmon's Call



 

Can I take your picture
Put it in my billfold
You'll never believe where I will take you
Can I have your headband
Put it in my suitcase
You know I'm always gone before I think to thank you

I'm a soul that wanders
In the field between the Hyatt and the Leela
Empty as a tiffen in the afternoon

A perfect love is a world without hunger
A perfect love is a world without hunger

Freckles on your forehead
Twinkle in your eyes
You look just like my true love
Is she in your village
When can I meet her
She's so indigenously dressed
You're so indigenously dressed

I'm a thumb that wanders through
The pages of the National Geographic
Staring at my cell phone in an airport lounge

A perfect love
Maybe I'll stay here
Is a world without hunger

You know a perfect love is a world without hunger
I've never seen it
I've never heard of it before
But I keep looking for
A world without hunger

Cricket for baseball
Polo for golf
Curry for ketchup and barbecue sauce
Lookin' to find a reason to shine
Waitin' in rickshaws, standing in line

Or wandering through the field
Between the Hyatt and the Leela
Empty as a tiffen

words and music by Joshua Moore, Randall Goodgame, and Andrew Osenga

Behind the Song:
"The older I get, the clearer it becomes that love cannot be requested and it can't be genuinely given for the sole purpose of fulfilling a need. It has to be inspired. I think I'm finally starting to grasp the differences between the limits of human interaction in romantic relationships with the completed nature of God's love for his children because of Christ, the perfect inspiration. For some reason, I kept getting them confused. On a similar note, the starving mouths of India will not be fed immediately but that doesn't mean we abandon our striving for the end of global starvation. I saw a wound in the eyes of many people on our trips that I was desperate to cover, and it looked surprisingly similar to the one I have seen in the center of my failed relationships. Our command is that perfect peace and love are, for this realm anyway, to be always pursued even if never attained." - Andrew Osenga (Caedmon's Call)
