Brooke Fraser - Hosea’s Wife Lyrics




Send Hosea’s Wife Ringtone to your Cell

I just spoke silence with the seeker next to me
She had a heart with hesitant, halting speech
That turned to mine and asked belligerently: "What do I live for?"
I see the scars of searches everywhere I go
From hearts to wars to literature to radio
There's a question like shame no one will show: "What do I live for?"
We are Hosea's wife
We are squandering this life
Using people like ladders and words like knives

[CHORUS]
If we've eyes to see
If we've ears to hear
To find it in our hearts and mouths, the word that saves is near
Shed that shallows skin
Come and live again
Leave all you were
To believe is to begin

There's truth in little corners of our lives
There are hints of it in songs and childrens eyes
It's familiar, like an ancient lullaby
What do i live for?
We are Hosea's wife
We are squandering this life
Using bodies like money and truth like lives

[CHORUS]

[BRIDGE]
We are more than dust
That means something
That means something
We are more than blood and emotions, inklings and notions, atoms on oceans
