francesca battistelli » My Paper Heart » Time In Between


You were there when Your Father said

Let there be light

You obeyed when He whispered

Son, You have to leave tonight

To spend nine months in a mother's womb

Three days in a borrowed tomb



But it's the time in between

That brings me to my knees

Knowing You came for me

And all that I can't be

I'm amazed, so amazed

And I thank You for the time in between



Don't take much for this crazy world

To rob me of my peace

And the enemy of my soul

Says You're holding out on me

So I stand here lifting empty hands

For You to fill me up again



But it's the time in between

That I fall down to my knees

Waiting on what You'll bring

And the things that I can't see

I know my song's incomplete

Still I'll sing in the time in between



So many ways

Your love has saved the day

And I'm grateful for them all



But it's the time in between

The middle of two thieves

That says everything, it's the reason I believe

I'm amazed, so amazed

And I thank You for the time in between

Oh Lord, I thank You for the time in between
