Not a good night for me

Never Heard the Music
Rich Mullins
As Recorded on Here in America

Exodus 15:1-19

I used to wake up angry
Knowing the sun would shine
But the light would get lost in the clouds
I used to be so lonely
Wishing that love was mine
But never knowing where that it was found

And then there was You, Lord
Though You had always been
I’d never opened up to You
And then I was through, Lord
Through with the empty games
Now I know I want to live my life out loving You

I never heard the music ’til the day I met You Lord
I never heard the music ’til the day I met You Lord
Now I bless You for the songs that each day brings
And for how they taught me how to sing anew

I used to feel so empty
I’d listen to the radio
But never hear a thing within my heart
The days went on unending
With nowhere new to go
Just hang around and play out the same, old part

But dreams don’t come true Lord
Though I wish them on the stars
I’d never given up to You
And what can I do, Lord?
I’d wait for the songs to start
And now I know the music that comes from loving You

I never heard the music ’til the day I met You Lord
I never heard the music ’til the day I met You Lord
Now I bless You for the songs that this day brings
And for how they taught me how to sing anew

I never heard the music ’til the day I met You Lord
I never heard the music ’til the day I met You Lord
Now I bless You for the songs that each day brings
And for how they taught me how to sing
They taught me how to sing anew

Why can’t I be everything I ever dreamed of?  Why do I have to wait?  Why is this HELL?
