"3 Minute Song" Lyrics [edit]
by Josh Wilson | from the album Trying To Fit The Ocean In A Cup

I try to write a song
And keep it 3 minutes long
Get in, get out, nobody gets hurt
And I tried a thousand times
To fit God between the lines
But I'm finding out that doesn't really work

I just don't have the words to say
Cause words only get in my way

I must apologize, I have the hardest time
Finding something to define a God that I can't define
And even if I could, it would take way too long
If all I've got is a 3 minute song

I've got a hundred metaphors
And if I had a million more
I could never ever seem to sum this up
Besides, how can some melody
Communicate eternity
It's like trying to fit the ocean in a cup

I'll never find the words to say
Cause words only get in my way

I would like to dumb this down to 3 chords or maybe 4
But I've tried and I can't and I won't cause there will always be more

So I apologize
I can't seem to get it right
