I would take no for an answer

Just to know I heard You speak

And I'm wonderin' why I've never

Seen the signs they claim to see

Are the special revelations

Meant for everbody but me?

Maybe I don't truly know You

Or maybe I just simply believe



'Cause I can sniff, I can see

I can count up pretty high

But these faculties aren't getting me

Any close to the sky

But my heart of faith keeps poundin'

So I know I'm doin' fine

But sometimes finding You

Is just like trying to

Smell the color nine




Now I've never 'felt the presence'

But I know You're always near

And I've never 'heard the calling'

But somehow You've lead me right here

So I'm not looking for burning bushes

Or some divine graffiti to appear

I'm just begging You for some wisdom

And believing You're putting some here



Repeat chorus



Smell the color nine?

But nine's not a color

And even if it were you can't smell a color

That's my point exactly
