what if?...

what if you're right
and he was just another nice guy?
what if you're right?
what if it's true?
they say the cross will only make a fool of you.
and what if it's true?

what if he takes his place in history
with all the prophets and the kings
who taught us love and came in peace
but then the story ends?
what then?

but what if you're wrong?
what if there's more?
what if there's hope you never dreamed of hoping for?
what if you jumped?
just closed your eyes?
what if the arms that catch you catch you by surprise?

what if he's more than enough?
what if it's love?

what if you dig
way down deeper than your simple minded friends?
what if you dig?
but what if you find
a thousand more unanswered questions down inside?
and that's all you find?
what if you pick apart the logic and begin to poke the holes?
what if the crowns of thorns is no more than folklore
that must be told and retold?

but what if you're wrong
what if there's more
what if there's hope you never dreamed of hoping for
what if you jumped
just closed your eyes
what if the arms that catch you catch you by surprise?

what if he's more than enough?
what if it's love?

you've been running as fast as you can
and you've been looking for a place you can land
for so long.
but if you're wrong?

what if it's love?
what if it's love?
