‘Temple’ by Christopher James de Kock

guess your love was a temple
you kept the heathens out
no salvation for this soul
no comfort for my doubt

if your anger’s an army 
i’m so way out-gunned
guess i should surrender to you now
so i see my son

guess your eyes were a blind man’s
cuz you never saw
all the ways that i tried to
give you what i could

but this heart’s been a teacher
though the lesson’s hard
so forgive this poor pupil
finally learned enough

i guess that it’s not meant to be
i never knew the way to heal the suffering you feel
a fundamental human disease
to be saved from above by some perfect love
we know we won’t receive

guess all efforts were wasted
like every one i’ve known
no rewards for devotion
no shining prize of gold

but the pain brought me wisdom
and my loss is hope
no more voices to guide me
find my truth alone

i guess that we all want to believe
that someone sees us more than the weak fools we really are
a fundamental human disease
to be saved from above by some perfect love
we know we won’t receive

it’s in you it’s in me
it’s in the air that i breathe
it’s in the symphonies
it’s in the way my son looks like me
