Riley Armstrong Album: Riley Armstrong Track: Only
He came for the lost and lonely He came for the broken hearted
Ready or not he came He came for the wounded soldier He came for the cynical son
Ready or not he came That they might know him for who he was And see the hope that saturates his cause
Inside they want to know Cause the only song they want to hear is love Cause the notes they try to play have been left out
He came for the bruised and battered He came for those forgotten Ready or not he came He came for the troubled family He came for the hungry little girl.
That they might know him for who he was And see the hope that saturates his cause Cause the only song they want to hear is love Cause the notes they try to play have been left out And the only song they want to sing is love Life's always taking more from them than it gives out.
And I've never been so aware of what he did for me It hit home with me today What he did for us, will it hit home with us Make the life we live to fade away That they might know to see That only he can sing The song of love that saturates.
