You would think I was born yesterday
The way I act sometimes
Like I'd never heard your good message
Deaf, dumb & blind
Speak harsh to my children
Impatient with my lover
And that man on the street today, he cut me off in traffic
You should've heard me scream
And just when I think I'ved pushed it too far
Worried about the battle and blowing the war
That's when I hear
Your voice in my ear with
Love so simple, Love so plain
Coming down on me like the rain
With sweet forgiveness no matter what I do
And it makes me want to get
Just a little bit
Closer to you
'Cause Lord, I carry these demons
Temptation, I've had my fun
But lately I've been thinking
There's work to be done
I know how to be gentle
It's just that I forget
If someone makes me angry, someone's in a hurry, I can just let them just rush on by
And take that deeper breath
Because this is the battle, this is the war
This is really worth fighting for
And I have no fear
As long as you are near with
Love so simple, Love so plain
Coming down on me like the rain
With sweet forgiveness no matter what I do
And it makes me want to get
Just a little bit
Closer to you
These things I say and do
I wish that you did not see
I'm thanking you now
For giving up on me with
Love so simple, Love so plain
Coming down on all of us like the rain
With sweet forgiveness no matter what we do
And it makes me want to get
Just a little bit
Closer to you
