Lyrics

Didn't See It Coming

 
Part 1
He told her that he loved her

She said she loved him more
Lost in one another as they
Strolled along the shore

They didn't see it coming
There was nothing they could do
Were they calling out for You?

Swept away together
They were never to be found
We all know where we were that day
The impact was profound
We didn't see it coming
Was there nothing You could do?

 
Part 2
The sound of children's laughter
Echoed through the hall
They were hopping, skipping,
Running, climbing, smiling,
One and all


They didn't see it coming
There was nothing they could do
God, where on earth were You?

As precious little bodies
Lay bleeding on the floor
We all know where we were that day
We'll grieve for evermore
We didn't see it coming
Was there nothing You could do?


I n s t r u m e n t a l

Enrapt in one another
Still strolling hand in hand
Around the shores of Heaven
Leaving footprints in the sand

They didn’t see it coming
There was nothing they could do
But they were calling out for You

I can hear the laughter

Little children having fun
As they play in Heaven's Garden
Where they stay forever young

We didn’t see it coming...oh~no
We didn’t see it coming
We didn’t see it coming
They were reaching out for You

 (High in the sky)

No time to say goodbye
We didn’t see it coming
There was nothing we could do
