God moves the pen

Shakespeare writing on a piece of paper
Hank Williams singing on an old guitar
Both of them trying to find the words
Somewhere up above the stars

But I’ve seen it there in old love letters
Stuck to the fridge on a Post-it note
Red lipstick on a bathroom mirror
Or tucked in the pocket of a cowboy’s coat

Written in the sky
Written in the sand
On the back of a car dragging old tin cans
True love declared
With brush and paint
Way up there on a small town water tank
Carved in an oak
Or tattooed on the skin
Love moves the heart
God moves the pen

It’s “I miss you daddy” in blue Crayola
X’s and O’s in sidewalk chalk
I’ve seen “I heart Jenny” on an overpass
When the tongue is just too tired to talk

Written in the sky
Written in the sand
On the back of a car dragging old tin cans
True love declared
With brush and paint
Way up there on a small town water tank
Carved in an oak
Or tattooed on the skin
Love moves the heart
God moves the pen

So write it in the sky
Write it in the sand
On the back of a car dragging old tin cans
True love declared
With brush and paint
Way up there on a small town water tank
Carved in stone
Or tattooed on the skin
Love moves the heart
Love moves the heart
But God moves the pen

burn baby burn
