Chris Rice – Naive lyrics

How long until You defend Your name

And set the record right?

How far will you allow the human race

To run and hide? Yeah.

And how much can You tolerate our weaknesses

Before You step into our sky blue and say

"that's quite enough"

Am I naive to want a remedy

For every bitter heart?

Can I believe You hold an

Exclamation point for every question mark? Yeah.

And can I leave the timing of this universe

To bigger hands?

And may I be so bold to ask

You to please hurry?

I hear that a God who's good

Would never let the evil

Run so long

But I say it's because You're good

You're giving us more time

'Cause I believe that You love to show us mercy

But when will You step into our sky blue and say

"that's quite enough, and your time is up" Yeah.

Repeat chorus

Am I naive?

Can I believe?

And can I leave in bigger hands?

And may I be so bold to ask You, to ask You,

To ask You

How long?
