The heart is deceitful above all
Who can know it?
That's what the Bible says
I know all too well
Been there, done that
Don't want to go back
Yet it often whispers
I refuse to listen
It calls out to me
"Come back over here"
The power of the dark side can be great
Must resist and stay on track
Keep my focus
Focus is hard
The lure of the dark heart is tempting
It clouds the mind
And who is the author of confusion?
"See what I have for you now?"
The dark heart calls out
It knows my name
It had me once
Once it has had you
It will always think it can get you back
And it will if you look into its eyes
Don't look or you'll lose focus
Stray from the narrow way
Yet it calls me
"Come here lost one. I have what you need"
It's just an illusion
A trick of the enemy
Waiting to ambush the soul
Pull you in and steal your heart
Turning the pure heart to dark
I resist now having been there before
Yet it calls me
Why am I listening?
Resist and it will flee
When will it flee?
