A Simple Faith

Description
A prayer, really - trying to get past all the human interference and back to basics. (Had some fun with my vocabulary on that bridge, too!)

Lyrics
The modern world of unreality
The modern mind that calculates its way
Ideas from the mind of man
Tree of knowledge, fruit in hand
The modern way that leads us all astray

A Simple Faith is not as easy as it sounds
To believe just like a child and let your heart love like it should.
A Simple Faith just like the kind that saved the world
To embrace a truth beyond all words, I only wish I could
… know a Simple Faith.

To get in touch with truth so pure and free
To leave behind the clutter in my brain
In grace as when it all began
Free of knowledge, Holy man
To just believe with no need to explain.

A Simple Faith is not as easy as it sounds
To believe just like a child and let your heart love like it should.
A Simple Faith just like the kind that saved the world
To embrace a truth beyond all words, I only wish I could
… know a Simple Faith.

BRIDGE:
Formulate and analyze
Codify and theorize
Pontificate and canonize
Deconstruct and synthesize
Calculate and compromise
Redefine and improvise
Speculate, apologize
Intelligent does not mean wise
Meditate, internalize
Get in touch and harmonize
Flush the facts and fantasize
Take the scales off of my eyes
Find the truth, ignore the lies
Find that faith that simplifies
Unencumbered, realize
A faith that knows no alibis

A Simple Faith is not as easy as it sounds
To believe just like a child and let your heart love like it should.
A Simple Faith just like the kind that saved the world
To embrace a truth beyond all words, I only wish I could
… know a Simple Faith.

So many songs...
too little time. This is wonderful. I need to listen to all your songs and get caught up on comments. This is beautiful. First song I heard this morning, and it cuts through all the junk that wants to invade my mind, It's so true-intelligent does not mean wise. And you are a very gifted singer/songwriter.

Just a folk singer. Well - mostly a folk singer, but I like to try just about every style a middle-class white guy from Mid-Michigan can sincerely try. Be sure to check out my "band" — I used to play R&R with these guys back in the 70s, but now we'... [see more]
