The Little Things

by Paul “Gully” Richards

I've waited forever
And I will suffer
A little while more
For you to understand
What the heart is made for.
 
Self-will never worked for us
It never will.
I've been turning it over
I am turning it in
But I can help myself
From taking it 
All back again.
 
I've waited forever
And I will suffer
A little bit more
Do you see now
That is what the heart
The heart is made for.
 
It's written in the scriptures
It's written down in blood
That’s the things
The little things
You do for love
