Josh Wilson – 3 Minute Song lyrics

I tried to write a song, and keep it 3 minutes long
Get in, get out, nobody gets hurt
And I tried a thousand times to fit God between the lines
But I'm finding out that doesn't really work

[Chorus:]
I just don't have the words to say, cause words only get in my way
I must apologize, I have the hardest time
Finding something to define a God that I canэt define
And even if I could, it would take way too long
If all I've got's a 3 minute song

I've got a hundred metaphors, and if I had a million more
I could never ever seem to sum this up
Besides, how can some melody communicate eternity?
Itэs like trying to fit the ocean in a cup

[Chorus:]
I just don't have the words to say, cause words only get in my way
I must apologize, I have the hardest time
Finding something to define a God that I canэt define
And even if I could, it would take way too long
If all I've got's a 3 minute song

I'll never find the words to say cause words only get in the way
I would like to dumb this down to 3 chords, or maybe 4
But I've tried and I can't and I won't cause there will always be more
So I apologize, I can't seem to get it right

[Chorus:]
I just don't have the words to say, cause words only get in my way
I must apologize, I have the hardest time
Finding something to define a God that I canэt define
And even if I could, it would take way too long
If all I've got's a 3 minute song

    God is so great and unfathomable. There's so much about god that we don't understand, that we could never even understand. He exceeds our thoughts, our minds, and our emotions. He's so great that we cannot even comprehend his greatness. Even if we could explain who god is and how great it is, it would just take so long. People try to fit god into their little worlds. They try to say that "god could never do this" or "god can only do this. " this song is saying that, yes you may have some knowledge of god and who he is but you cannot fit god into a cup. He's greater than your thoughts, your logic, and your reasoning. You can't scientifically explain who god is because he is greater than any type of math/calculations, any type of science, or equation that you can possible think of. He is able to exceed your expectations. The greatest thing that you can think of, god can exceed it. This song is just speaking about the greatness of god. He's so great that the writer cannot even think where to begin to explain.
