I tried to write a song and keep it 3 minutes long
Get in, get out, nobody gets hurt
And I tried a thousand times to fit God between the lines
But I'm finding out that doesn't really work

I just don't have the words to say 'cause words only get in my way
I must apologize, I have the hardest time
Finding something to define a God that I can't define
And even if I could, it would take way too long
If all I've got's a 3 minute song

I've got a hundred metaphors and if I had a million more
I could never ever seem to sum this up
Besides how can some melody communicate eternity
It's like trying to fit the ocean in a cup

I never find the words to say 'cause words only get in my way
I must apologize, I have the hardest time
Finding something to define a God that I can't define
And even if I could, it would take way too long
If all I've got's a 3 minute song

I would like to dumb this down to 3 chords or maybe 4
But I've tried and I can't and I won't 'cause there will always be more
So I apologize, I can't seem to get it right

I must apologize, I have the hardest time
Finding something to define a God I just can't define
And even if I could, it would take way too long
If all I've got's a 3 minute song
Well, all I've got's a 3 minute song, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
