Nichole Nordeman - Wide Eyed

rate me

When I met him on a sidewalk<br />

He was preaching to a mailbox<br />

Down on 16th Avenue<br />

And he told me he was Jesus<br />

Sent from Jupiter to free us<br />

With a bottle of tequila and one shoe<br />

He raged about repentance<br />

He finished every sentence<br />

With a promise that the end was close at hand<br />

I didn't even try to understand<br />

He left me wide eyed in disbelief and disillusion<br />

I was tongue tied, drawn by my conclusions<br />

So I turned and walked away<br />

And laughed at what he had to say<br />

Then casually dismissed him as a fraud<br />

I forgot he was created in the image of my God<br />

When I met her in a bookstore<br />

She was browsing on the first floor<br />

Through a yoga magazine<br />

And she told me in her past life<br />

She was some plantation slave's wife<br />

She had to figure out what that might mean<br />

She believes the healing powers of her crystals<br />

Can bring balance and new purpose to her life<br />

Sounds nice<br />

She left me wide eyed in disbelief and disillusion<br />

I was tongue tied, drawn by my conclusions<br />

So I turned and walked away<br />

And laughed at what she had to say<br />

Then casually dismissed her as a fraud<br />

I forgot she was created in the image of my God<br />

Not so long ago, a man from Galilee<br />

Fed thousands with His bread and His theology<br />

And the truth He spoke<br />

Quickly became the joke<br />

Of educated, self-inflated Pharisees like me<br />

And they were wide eyed in disbelief and disillusion<br />

They were tongue tied, drawn by their conclusions<br />

Would I have turned and walked away<br />

And laughed at what He had to say<br />

And casually dismissed Him as a fraud<br />

Unaware that I was staring at the image of my God
