”This song is the longing of a heart to return to child-likeness, remembering the simpler times, the wonder of life and faith through the eyes of child, and the heart-cry to return to the simplicity of love that we once knew.” (David Brymer)

VERSE 2
When I knew the Holy Ghost
The thing that I remember most
I was closer to my purpose
And what I was meant to be
Love with no expectation
Asking so many questions
When trust was natural and real
And I embraced with empathy

BRIDGE
D E
I don't wanna judge my neighbor
A/C# D
I want the stranger as my friend
Dmaj7 E
To unlearn all this learned behavior
A/C# D
To face the darkness within
D E
Give my soul a deep awareness
A/C# D
Tenderize my heart again
Dmaj7 E
To sit, in suffering, with another
D/F# E/G#
Until the tears come to an end
