  • I tried to write a song and keep it 3 minutes long
    Get in, get out, nobody gets hurt
    And I tried a thousand times to fit God between the lines
    But I'm finding out that doesn't really work

    I just don't have the words to say 'cause words only get in my way
    I must apologize, I have the hardest time
    Finding something to define a God that I can't define
    And even if I could, it would take way too long
    If all I've got's a 3 minute song

    I've got a hundred metaphors and if I had a million more
    I could never ever seem to sum this up
    Besides how can some melody communicate eternity
    It's like trying to fit the ocean in a cup

    I never find the words to say 'cause words only get in my way
    I must apologize, I have the hardest time
    Finding something to define a God that I can't define
    And even if I could, it would take way too long
    If all I've got's a 3 minute song

    I would like to dumb this down to 3 chords or maybe 4
    But I've tried and I can't and I won't 'cause there will always be more
    So I apologize, I can't seem to get it right

    I must apologize, I have the hardest time
    Finding something to define a God I just can't define
    And even if I could, it would take way too long
    If all I've got's a 3 minute song
    Well, all I've got's a 3 minute song, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
