This Cup
by Sara Groves

Album: Floodplain

how many hours have I spent
watching this shining tv
living adventure in proxy
in another person's dream
how many miles have I traveled
looking at far away lights
listening for trains in the distance
in some brilliant other life?

this cup, this cup
I wanna drink it up
to be right here in the middle of it
right here, right here
this challenging reality
is better than fear or fantasy

so take up what we've been given
welcome the edge of our days
hemmed in by sunrise and sunset
by our youth and by our age
thank God for our dependence
here's to our chasm of need
and how it binds us together
in faith and vulnerability


what if my whole world falls apart?
what if my life could be different?
what if I sat right here and took you in
without the fear and loved you whole
without the flight and didn't try to pass
