My Visible, See​-​Through Friend

from Come As You Are by basic



Faith is being sure of what you hope for, and certain of what (or whom) you do not see


My Visible, See-Through Friend (2000)
I can't feel your arms around me, but I know that they are there
And I can't see your eyes lookin' at me, but I know they're everywhere
And I can't even hear your voice, callin' out my name
But deep inside my heart confirms you, and I know it just the same

You speak the language of my heart, connecting with my soul
And though it seems we're worlds apart, you have become my whole
Life, my whole way of thinking, you cause my every move
And deep inside my heart confirms you, cause my life has been made new

Oh, you have my heart, though I can't touch you
And I know that I am yours - I feel it deep inside
No storm can ever undo, the faith I have built in you
My visible, see-through friend

I did not get to see when you made the stars
Was it all just for me, did you see so far
Ahead, that I would see your face, lookin' back at me
In all the things that you have made, sayin, "I have set you free!"

Can it be that just a man right here like me
Can have a friend he can not see?
Well friend I tell you that it's not these eyes that see
It's the eyes of faith that have come - from seein' the things he has done
