06. Do I?

Mindsize
by Poor Old Lu



 

She might have been a princess
She might've been here with us
Or ride so high and far away

Is she sleeping safely?
Is her sky the same way?
Does she know now my own fear?

She might've seen the ocean
If I'd had the notion
To listen closely and obey

I don't know love, do I?

He might have had the stars in
In his eyes and within
He might've been my brother now

Jesus will you hold him?
Showing that you love him?
Careless I have been with words

He should not see the weather
His joy should last forever
Please give him reason to go on

Well is my treasure ever
Any good if I'll never
Have the love to give away?

We might've seen the ocean
I know I've had the notion
But I don't know love
So what's to say?



Behind the Song:
''Do I?' was one of the last songs written for Mindsize. About as moody and emotional as any song we've written, it was a great way to bring things down a bit in concert. Like many songs, the live version developed well beyond the album version and, in fact, we also wished we'd had those extra parts for the version on Mindsize. In general terms, 'Do I?' was written to describe a struggle between reaching out to those who don't know the Lord, and dealing with our fear of sharing our faith. In personal terms, this song is about my personal struggle in sharing my faith with my family, and my brother specifically. The chorus states the essence of the struggle - if I I knew love as the Lord does (that is, if I have the Lord's love for these people), these things should not be a struggle at all.' - Poor Old Lu
