This song is tough to write a synopsis about. I guess you will have to listen to it.



You never know when he’ll take you
it’s out of your control
when the one who made you
says it’s time to come back home

It might be on a mountain high
or walkin’ down the street
or underneath your porch light
as you turn the key

But it don’t mean he don’t love you
it don’t mean he don’t care
he’s made a place above you
even if you never said a prayer

It might be a footnote
or a headline in the news
or the solemn surgeon
saying there’s nothing he can do

It has nothing to do with justice
your guilt or innocence
the reasons are just his
not ours to comprehend


So have or have not
the doorbell always rings
if it seems before your time
he’d say there’s no such thing



from Summer's Voice, track released March 1, 2007
