Tell Me Why (2)

What charms my heart to butterflies?

What charms my heart to fly?

What charms my heart to loudly sing?

And can you tell me why?

 

What lures me to the water's edge?

What lures me to the lie?

What lures me to the ocean's depth?

And can you tell me why?

 

What makes a son do crazy things?

What makes a mom to die?

What makes a father distant so?

And can you tell me why?

 

What draws me to the pastures green?

What draws me to the sky?

What draws me to His loving arms?

And can you tell me why?

 

What drives my soul to worship Him?

What drives my eyes to cry?

What drives my love to do His will?

Please, can you tell me why?

 

What pulls my thoughts to greater thoughts?

What pulls emotions nigh?

What pulls my soul so Heavenward?

Now can you tell me why?
