The Same Way You Love God



You want me to love you the same way you love me
with true admiration in every wave and sea

You want me to love you the same way you love verve
with real aspiration in every dip and curve

You want me to love you the same way you love joy
with grand adulation in every con and ploy

You want me to love you the same way you love truth
with apt affirmation in every gift and couth

You want me to love you the same way you love sun
with full application in every stride and run

You want me to love you the same way you love life
with cold abnegation in every fall and strife

You want me to love you the same way you love take
with now activation in every hurt and ache

You want me to love you the same way you love God
with deep adoration in every place and sod
