"IF YOU'RE FAR AWAY"
When you came to me, I knew you were an angel,
And I tried to find away to make you mine.
You gave to me, your love so free,
And it seemed like we had stopped the hands of time.
Then I saw that if it's love, it lasts forever,
And the fire keeps on burning without end.
But I couldn't keep it all for me,
And the greatest love is laying down your life for your friends.
And if you're far away, my heart will break,
But I'm comforted to know that Love will guide you.
And I know it's right, so shine your light
And share your love with those who need you too.
Now I can't say that for me it's always easy,
And I know sometimes I really feel afraid.
But in the night I'll hold on tight,
To the perfect Love that drives all fear away.
It's giving that gives life a brand new meaning,
It's trusting in God's Love that sets us free.
It breaks the chains, it heals the pain,
And I can only give to others what He gave to me.
[Repeat chorus twice]
