lyrics

Overdue Poem
© 2003 Jason Paul Johnston

It's been a while, I know I should have said all this before
I've waited too long, to offer you this over-due poem
I hope you will keep it, The ramblings of a love stuck little man
Forget my forgetting, and please hold out your hand

'cause I had forgotten your beautiful face
And left out the part you extended me grace
But now, I'm here, to say...

Chorus:
That when I see your face – I can't believe I ever went away
When I see your face – I don't know why I didn't stay
When I see your face – I just start to pray

I've written so much, but very little that pertained to you
Stories of myself, I came up with it all, and some of it was true

But I had forgotten your beautiful face
And left out the part you extended me grace
But now, I'm here to say... chorus

Chorus

In the morning I'll rise, in the evening I'll fall
At your consistent hand and your exquisite power
I will pick up my life, I will answer your call
And step into the circle and give you my all....

Chorus
