Song of the Day #23: The Surface of Things

“Never judge a book by it’s cover.”

I can’t tell you how many times in my life I’ve heard that phrase, but I can tell you that there’s a lot of wisdom in it.

So often, we look at what’s on the surface and don’t take the time to look deeper. This is the case with situations, opportunities, and especially people. If you don’t look past the surface of things, you miss out on so much.

 
 
 
The Surface of Things
 
I can feel your presence
I know you’re looking at me
I can feel your gaze in my direction
I know you’re there
 
Tell me what do you see
when you’re looking at me?
Can you see who I am
on the inside?
 
Chorus: If you only see the surface of things
there’s so much you’re missing
You’ll have to look much deeper
to see what I’m made of.
Please look past the surface of things
and see there’s more to me
If you love me
You’ll find the man I really am
just beneath the surface.
 
I know you’re listening
I can see it in your eyes
I can hear it in your voice
when you speak to me.
 
Tell me what do you hear
when you’re listening to me?
Can you hear who I am
on the inside?
 
Chorus
 
Bridge: These aren’t just empty words
or wasted breaths to satisfy.
This is who I am
and how I feel.
 
Chorus
 

As always, if you like these lyrics, feel free to share them. That “share” button is there for a reason, you know!

See you tomorrow!
