Have you ever wondered what it's like
when all the people have gone
when the cityscape is a meadow again
and the houses have vanished away?

Have you ever wondered where they'll go
when the shadow has passed
when the sun sets without witness
and rises to awaken no one?

Have you ever wondered what God thought
when He made all of this
when He planned our every breath
and saw the days before they came?

Have you ever wondered if it's true
that God wants us all the same
if some shine on into eternity
and others taste life but a moment?

Have you ever wondered if God cries
when people are lost;
when He knew all along of their fate
and gave them life anyway?

Have you ever wondered what they'll feel
when they see us dancing with joy
when everything they never wanted
is all they can think about?

Have you ever wondered if down there
they watch and wait and hope
that those they love and those they don't
will never follow them there?

Have you ever wondered how we'll feel
when we forget their names
when they don't come to mind anymore
and He lifts the pain away?

Have you ever wondered how it will be
to spend all my days with you
when time is no matter
for the clock has been broken?

Have you ever wondered what it'll be like
when the earth is reborn
when the people come together once more
and there is peace?
I tried to come back around with the first stanza at the end, but didn't work out.

the 4th stanza needs some explaining:
The Bible says God doesn't want anyone to perish, yet there are some verses that suggest that God knows when He creates people whether they will follow Him or not. The Book of Life is already written, to my understanding. C.S. Lewis said in his book The Problem of Pain that we can't judge if it would be better for someone to never be born, even though they're ultimately headed for destruction. Just sayin' I don't know everything and this is something I'm trying to understand.
