i want

i want a new world
i want a new body
with better reasons to sing
i want a pure heart
one that doesn't feel the shame
of the weakness hiding in me

i want the strength to believe
and the vision to see
that i can share in that world
i want the patience to wait
and the mind to conceive
so this hope can overflow me

i want to see you
with my eyes not just my mind
i want to know you
with fingertips that are mine
i want forever
filled with possibilities
i want this tension
to be just a memory

i want you to teach me
how i really ought to be
who it is you're making me.
i want to look up
and love the people that i see
with the things you know they need
