Story

This song asks god or the great spirit to speak through me that I may be a vessel of spirit and do something good and meaningful with my life. "Love's the one thing that we seek." The song never mentions "god" but is so clearly about spiritual or divine energy and the desire for connection.

Lyrics

Speak Through Me

 

Must be a million snowflakes

Spiraling by my window tonight

Together they make a blanket

But each one is a masterpiece in its own right

White on white on white

 

Must be a billion people

Looking for meaning on this earth

Together we tell the story

But each one has a moment to recite his verse

A lifetime to rehearse, a chance to heal the hurt

 

From the mighty to the meek

Love's the one thing that we seek

So when my turn comes to speak, speak through me

Words can break and words can build

So I pray, let mine be filled

With your wisdom and your will, speak through me

 

Now that I know what matters

Now that my heart is yours to hold

I realize my prize possessions

Never made me wealthy

They were just fool's gold

Only left me cold and empty in my soul

 

Chorus

 

From the mighty to the meek

Love's the one thing that we seek

So when my turn comes to speak, speak through me

I just ask before I die

That I can touch one single life

With compassion as my guide

Speak through me, speak through me

Words can break and words can build

So I pray, let mine be filled

With your wisdom and your will, speak through me
