Katie-Lynn, you've always lived your life out loud You know that's something I have always loved you for Katie-Lynn, this one has brought you to the ground Katie-Lynn, we all feel we've let you down Katie-Lynn, I am unsure of what to say 'Cause you and I both know it's been too long Katie-Lynn, it finally came to me today Katie-Lynn, I didn't take the time to pray
So all the words you heard were bouncing Bouncing off of you And all the lines drawn in to save you Were just getting in the way of love And did you ever believe what we were saying? And can I blame you? 'Cause how transparent was I, were you looking at me?
Katie-Lynn, you've always had those dancing gypsy eyes And a spirit that longed to try its wings Petite ouseau, you flew into a clouded sky How could you see your good intentions wouldn't get you by
But you could rise upon the wings of the eagles If you would only choose to leave the empty way you live Could you see, could you see you don't have to prove yourself to me Let it go, let your pain finally slide off your back Down at His feet
'Cause all the love He shows is just bouncing And all the hands we're reaching out are just getting in the way And if it's gonna take more to hold you To show you're loved in spite of you Well, how transparent am I when you're looking at me?
So you can see I know you've chosen your own way And it's hard but it's the road you've travelled on And I pray my life more than these words Will clearly say that Jesus loves you He's loved you all along
