W O U N D E D H E A R T Lyrics – Joshua Leventhal

You said You washed me whiter than the morning snow
But I’m caught up in the notion, I can’t let it go
If I’m a new creation who still plays in the mud
Have I truly accepted Your body, Your blood

You said You kissed me like a son because that’s what I am
But this fickle heart runs any chance it gets
If You’re the Lover all love stories have been pointing towards
Then I’m the runaway bride sobbing on the floor

But hey, You don’t give up on me that easily
And though I tried to be the one that got away
Your wounded heart nevеr stopped chasing me

You said I stand on the pillar of Your pеrfect blood
And there’s days where it feels like I think it should
But I’ve betrayed Your good faith more than a couple times
It’s my nails in Your hands and my spear in Your side

But hey, You don’t give up on me that easily
And though I tried to be the one that got away
Your wounded heart never stopped chasing me

And the very tree I nailed You to
Was the love that chased me down
And the agony spilled from those lips
The most beautiful of sounds

That at the center of that suffering
Was the wildest of loves
That as You hung there dying
It was Your killers You thought of

And hey, You don’t give up on me that easily
And though I tried to be the one that got away
Your wounded heart never stopped chasing
Your wounded heart, Your wounded heart
Your wounded heart never stopped chasing
