Something More

Johnny Go, SJ - Manoling Francisco, SJ

Beyond my eyes can see there must be something more
Beneath the surface rush of things there's something else in store.
Beyond the daily strife, there must be more to life.
An underlying rhyme in things I must have known before.

Before the seasons changed, before I grew too wise
I watched passing clouds in search of meaning in the skies.

I read between the lines but the verses lost their rhymes.
And though the truth has long been told I'm still waiting for a sign
Where are You, You whom I seek to know? Are You the One I'm looking for?
Show Your face. Why don't You break Your silence now?
Tame the stormy seas within me. Name these shadows trapped inside me.
Claim this lost and frightened child You see in me.

Beyond my eyes can see there must be something more
Beneath the surface rush of things there's something else in store.
Beyond the daily strife, there must be more to life.
An underlying rhyme in things I must have known before.
I bear my private plans I go the extra mile
Will you be there beyond this road to meet me with Your smile?
Before my very eyes You shed Your last disguise
And then I realize I need nothing more than the face I'll recognize.
