Donít You Wanna Talk About It?
Words and Music by: Larry Norman (If you have a friend and your friends in trouble. You know what you're supposed to do? You supposed to call everybody up on the telephone and tell 'em what's wrong with your friend. So you can all pray for him. No, we supposed to love one another and not do anyone harm. If someone harms you, turn your other cheek to them also and return anger with kindness. The Bible says that a soft tongue breaks a bone and the wounds of a friend are faithful but the kisses of a enemy are deadly.) True and faithful are the wounds of a friend Who keeps on praying that this war will end My heart is broken and I need it to mend Don't you wanna talk about it? You're drinking water from a bitter well Down on the beach, I see these broken shells Paradise is falling, I'm surprised you can't tell Don't you wanna talk about it? A line is drawn - the fear of death A bridge is crossed - the savoire-faire A friend is gone - the ratty breath But is not lost - the falling hair I watch the sky - there is a grip I see a falling star - a vacant stare And I asked the Lord I wonder where you are? Kingdoms of earth, they don't mean nothing to me I'd give my life if it would help you be free This ain't the way that God intends it to be Don't you wanna talk about it? I called your lawyer, but he said you were gone I didn't see you 'cause your headlights weren't on You shut the door and faded into the dawn Don't you wanna talk about it? A line is drawn - the fear of death A bridge is crossed - the savoire-faire A friend is gone - the ratty breath But is he lost? - the falling hair I pray each night - there is a grip I asked the Lord on high - a vacant stare Where you are? And I asked him why? Why must this go on? This battle inside That rages and rages Like some restless tide Over and over and over again The flesh and spirit Come against each other But I love you My brother, my brother. I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you It goes on and on This night does not end.
