lyrics

If it shakes you, let it shake you; let love’s heaviness o’ertake you
Let it bring you to your knees
Let the world outside look on; they will tell you to get on
But don’t let ‘em turn it cheap

We are not made for love that breaks
So our hearts can barely stand it when we think of our mistakes
Two spirits firmly spun, now somehow come undone
So of course in the unweaving there is pain.

This won’t take a little time; you will have to rest awhile
Broken bird, you aren’t strong.
In the waiting He draws near; says, Beloved do not fear,
I will bear all that went wrong.

You are not made for love that breaks
So your heart can barely stand it when you think of your mistakes
Your spirits firmly spun, now somehow come undone
So of course in the unweaving there is pain.

Though your tears are still increasing, streams of mercy never ceasing will never let you drown.
Perfect Love that you desire, Steady Friendship you require
You have had them all along.

You are not made for love that breaks
So your heart can barely stand it when you think of your mistakes
Your spirits firmly spun, now somehow come undone
Draw near to me I’ll see you through this pain.

You are not made for love that breaks
Though your heart can barely stand it, you’re not caught in your mistakes
One day you’ll find your home, and you will finally know this love That never leaves and ever stays the same.

We were caught up, smitten kittens, tumbling forward, tunnel vision
Now I’m lyin’ on the ground
And my Father, if He wills it, will replicate the thrills;
He can do it all again
