One Knight Stand

One Knight Stand

Am                                    G                  Fm
I don’t know you – You don’t know me
G                         Am
But we are here – Letting the Tender pour out wine
G                Fm
It’s numbing you – – its numbing me
G              Am
As we are here – letting the feeling consume us..

Fm                 Am
And so we dance and even sing
Words are exchanged with good intention
Am                                             F                            G
And here we touch and even kiss – calling it love – no future mentioned…

I’m seeing you – You’re seeing me
Exposed and bare – calling it lovely – even true
But when I see you in the day
You walk right by – not even knowing who I am

Chorus 2
So we go back – hoping for more
As others sing – and dance as we did
And Tender pours and fills each cup – and all is hushed – and all called ‘sacred’..

I don’t know you – you don’t know me
But I refuse to hold this against you anymore
I entered in on my own will – looking for love
Only to find I had my fill….

Written as if a (Mega) Church were a Club/Bar…
by its very nature – a false sense of intimacy vs. true commitment
The Bartender/’Tender’ being Pastor…
