​Show Me How to Love

This song is by Sidewalk Prophets and appears on the album These Simple Truths (2009).

Passed by you today
Why is there a war between us?
Are you not my brother?
Are you not my sister?
Something's got to change
Stood by you today
Why is there a wall between us?
Are you not my sister?
Are you not my brother?
Well something's got to change

I confess that I've been blind
Open up this heart of mine
Show me how to love
Farther than this world I know
Take me where You want me to go
Show me how to love

I know the times are always changing
But our hearts still beat the same
We have a Father
We have a Savior
And that will never change
I confess that I've been blind

Open up this heart of mine
Show me how to love
Farther than this world I know
Take me where You want me to go
Show me how to love

We are one heart beating
We are one body breathing
We are broken and needing
The same love of the Father
I confess that I've been blind
I confess, start with me, Lord

Behind the Song:
"So often we walk through life unaware of the lives and stories of those that surround us. "Show Me How to Love" takes an honest approach declaring that "something has to change," that something is our portrayal of God's love. Simple and to the point, we are all brothers and sisters in Christ, and we sometimes lose sight and need God to show us once again how to truly love." - Sidewalk Prophets
