To Burst Open Again

Cold-hearted child
Music gone wild,
afraid of the unknown

She cries and cries
lifts up her eyes
for children who do not show

Like a dried-up river,
she used to burst open,
but now she has withered away.

Jesus, it is my prayer
that the water wells up once again
I need You, not you

Return me to my love at first
Let me experience a second, a third burst
For You, my King, my everything
Let my love for them
burst open again
