If Lyrics

If a picture paints a thousand words
Then why can't I paint you?
The words will never show, the you I've come to know
If a face could launch a thousand ships
Then where am I to go?
There's no one home but you, you're all that's left me too

And when my love for life is running dry
You come and pour yourself on me

If a man could be two places at one time
I'd be with you
Tomorrow and today, beside you all the way
If the world should stop revolvin' spinning slowly down to die
I'd spend the end with you
And when the world was through

Then one by one the stars would all go out
Then you and I would simply fly away

So observant Jo Anne! I've always loved this song; but, it was never my wife I was thinking of. Perhaps, I could dedicate this to Christ and be done.

Try singing this song to Jesus! I know that might seem silly, but it works as a praise song. Jesus really does come & pour Himself on me, when my love of life runs dry. He restores my soul!!!
