When I was alone, all on my own
I'd sit myself down and take a look around
I'd think about my life, all the trouble and strife
And the things which went wrong and lasted so long
When I was feeling bad, maybe lonely and sad
I'd put my hands to my head and wonder where life led.
And where I was going to when my journey was through
But meanwhile up high I was always under the Eye.
The mystery of love, the push and the shove
Of friendship betrayed, of plans I mislaid,
The oceans I crossed, the things that I lost
And the world in my hand as dreams turned to sand.
All the agony of pride of emotion that died
Like a statue of stone, I thought I was all alone
Oh but that was just a lie, darkness magnified,
'Cause somewhere up high, I was always under the eye.
I shouldered my load, then I took off down the road
I drove in my car, and I played my guitar, mon.
I crashed in a plane, I really damaged my brain
And then I layed in my bed with all this music in my head.
The years have rolled by, I've watched the past die
But feelings remained like mercy much strained.
Like a seed left unsown, like a leaf that was blown
Like a man who was blind, there was a lock on my mind.
Then a man came to me and he held out the key
And the lock hinge was blown, I had never been alone
Yeah, that ws just a lie, darkness magnified
And though I was not away, all the time my Father was there.
