Id like to be you for a day,
Know what you feel, say what you say.
We could trade places and our faces
Live the lives that seem to make us.

Id have a feeling youd be reeling
Over the things I believe Im seeing,
As I would you; the joys, the blues,
Make the choices that you choose.

I think I see things so clear,
That I forget my windows are smeared.
I bet you often feel just as sure,
Led to believe your views are pure.

I wish I was much like you,
And see all as you do.
I wish you were just like me
And see now as I see.

The trials we face are common to each other,
Temptations we know are their brothers.
We both wonder what life has brought,
Seems were cut from the same ol cloth..

Yet youre still there, while Im here,
Feeling our tears, as well our cheers.
We speak of things so very starkly,
Of what we see in a mirror darkly.

Maybe I need an eye transplant,
From the Doctor, heaven-sent.
Not for my head, but my heart;
Would what Id see tear me apart?!

Still youre there, while Im here,
So far apart, even though so near.
Fixed like two islands in stormy seas.
The storm drowns out our drastic pleas.

A Day is coming, when storms now thronging
Give way to the noise of praise.
Well know of things weve been longing,
As He knows us with our days.
