​Passionate Man

This song is by Geoff Moore and appears on the album Pure and Simple (1990).

It was my summer of 18 years old
I grew tired of not letting go
As the promise land spread out
Beyond that old dirt road

I looked in my rear view mirror
And watched as my past slipped away
Like the dust cloud that rolled
From the back of that old Chevrolet

I gave you my heart with a promise
That I would never turn around
You led me out of that wilderness
Before the dust had settled down

And I loved you like the air I breathe
And you filled my empty heart
And I wore my faith out on my sleeve
Like a fire in the dark
I was willing to do anything
Eager to make a stand
I was a passionate boy
Make me a passionate man

My good intentions
Like water under the bridge
Have I thrown away the pearl
That made my life so rich

I turned down an old dirt road
So familiar to me
In the mirror I see a man
I swore I would never be

And I remember the promise
That I would never turn
What will it take to rekindle
The flame that used to burn

I remember the promise
That I would never turn
Won't you take and rekindle the flame
The flame that used to burn

And I'll love you like the air I breathe
And you fill my empty heart
And I'll wear my faith out on my sleeve
Like a fire in the dark
I am willing to do anything
Eager to make a stand
I was a passionate boy
Make me a passionate man
