To Move a Mountain
By Shawn Nelsen
I know I can never move a mountain, but I can try and move my soul
And in years past my lifetime I'll have lost faith in my goal
So it happens I'm not perfect, Though I work hard at what I do
I can learn only so much, but I've learned to make me new
I Know I have nothing to offer so I get down on my knees
I have the clothes on my back and I can barely pay life's fees
I have my life and I have my love, it's all that I know
As I lived all of my life, this is what I have to show.
I ask you not for answers, but to have faith in what I say
Believe me, I ask please wont someone turn my night into day
So Love is simply life and life is simply Love
It makes me wish I could open up my heart to release my white dove.
I can look out my window and I can open up my door
I could do all there is to do, but I'd never know what for
To look all around and never know what I see
Makes me ask "The pain inside, why should it be?"
I want to see all thatís beautiful; I want to feel all that's good
But instead it hurts so much insides like I never knew it could
I can start my search again; I can look into my soul
I only wish to all that is that life would pay its toll
There is a bridge that needs building and a road that needs paved
So I can walk lightly, but will I be saved?
For every question I find answered there is one right there that's new
Now I'll ask only one more thing and that's "What more can I do?"
