Dear World
Yeah, I heard
Your letter had so much hurt
Let me try to make things right and raise the veil

Where were you before you were born?
Who rose the sun this very morn’?
But let’s not get caught in details

Dear world
Dear world
Wait for the answers on your knees
Forget what you heard you can be sure
There’s room at my table for you
Dear world

All this business of religion
When all I wanted was children
At my table to pass the ladle around
I never meant for mouths to starve
Never meant for human hearts to horde all
The crumbs that fall down (to the ground)

Dear world
Dear world
Wait for the answers on your knees
Forget what you heard you can be sure
There’s room at my table for you
Dear world

Dear, dear, dear, dear world
I’m not the enemy
Don’t unfriend me

Dear, dear, dear, dear world
The holes in my story
Are scars of glory
Take my hand you’ll see

And I agree it’s a mystery
It’s hard to suspend disbelief
But I’d sooner die than take my eyes off of you (am I getting through?)

Dear world
Dear world
Wait for the answers on your knees
Forget what you heard you can be sure
There’s room at my table for you
Dear world
