When this fleeting limelight fades And we're alone again What name will your heart speak? What is true? what is real? Not what you feel What you know eternally
Ten years running blind and aimlessly Warming by the fires of bridges burning Ten thousand peering eyes that can only see The show, the smile, the face I allow How many more break beneath the surface? Young and bold, but blind and led by blind His person missed beyond His name Was this the hope when we began? A tragic generation Of faithless children and forgotten love? I know I'd hoped for some other, higher purpose
What is true and what is real Past what you might feel What do you know eternally? And when this fleeting limelight fades And we're alone again What name will your heart speak?
And if you see me on the way down Would you smile and send me on my way? And if you see me headed down Is there something more between You and i?
Something higher Something higher I want to be real again I want You, Father, be real in me And if I see you on the way down I'll lift your name up up into His care And if I see you headed down I'll do what I can to lift you up again
Burn us clean, refine this world away Make Yourself real to me Make us to live as You would
