Lyrics

I’ve spent my whole life waiting, praying for a love
Unsure if one would come for me
Someone to share each season, behold the beauty of the sky
Someone to heal the hurt in me

The day you walked into my life, the clouds they broke
The rainbow came
That day He opened my eyes to see the beauty of this thing
They call love

No longer counting hours, instead I’m cherishing the days
Sweet are the moments spent with you
Oh how can I explain this peace that’s breathing life in me
Somehow I know He’s made our way

The day you walked into my life, the clouds they broke
The rainbow came
That day He opened my eyes to see the beauty of this thing
They call love

They call love

It’s like every prayer I’ve prayed You’ve saved
You’re pouring out Your love on me
And everything I feel is sacred
Kisses from eternity

The day you walked into my life, the clouds they broke
The rainbow came
That day He opened my eyes to see the beauty of this thing
They call love

No longer counting hours, instead I’m cherishing the days
