Lyrics & notes

19 Jul 1974

don't make me talk about weather
please don't make me talk about trends
and don't ask my opinion of the latest style
can't we talk about something
that's never gonna end?

I just wanna talk about Jesus
I just wanna talk about His love
how it frees us
I just wanna talk about Jesus
and I just wanna talk about His love
He's the one we should all be talking of

don't make me think about fortune
don't make me think about fame
don't make me think about the friends that fail me
I'd rather think of someone who'll always stay the same

I want to be real with you
touch your heart
and tell you all my feelings true
let you know just who I am
and what I like to do
all I really want to do is to be
real with you

I need someone to tell my secrets to
someone to make me laugh
when I am feeling blue
someone to make me feel the way
you always seem to do
all I ever really need is you

all my life, people have been hiding
deserting and disguising themselves
never getting off of the shelves
when will they come down?...

I haven't got no four-piece band
to accompany me across the land
I ain't no comedian
at times I'm hard to understand
I'm not gonna fool you, I'm no hockey player
and I sure ain't no big word sayer
I'm just from the run of the mill
I'm just an ordinary old taxpayer, but

I'm a singer in the King's service
I'm just gonna say what I know
I didn't come here to put on a show—no!
I'm a singer in the King's service
I've just got to sing what I've heard
the King is coming back to this world

I ain't got no limousine
to shuttle me from...

28 May 1972

there are so many reasons in the world
to write songs
but You are the best reason I've got
and there's so many songs in the world
to sing
I will sing the song You taught me

let me sing this song for You
and then, Lord, when the song is through
teach the song to someone new
and let him sing it, Lord, for You

there are so many reasons in the world
to love
but You are the best reason I can think of
and there's so many people
who need to care
I will love the way You showed me

there are so many ways in the world
to give...
