Expect More. Pay Less.

I’m sittin’ in a traffic jam

Just north of Birmingham

Target truck to my right

Day turning to night

Irritated that my car sits idle

God exposes another idol

Expect more. Pay less.

High expectations.

Low investment.

Car wreck up ahead

People hurt, could be dead

Wish they’d speed this up

How dare they interrupt

My vacation with their pain

Tempted by that emergency lane

Expect more. Pay less.

High expectations.

Low investment.

Hurting people need my time

People’s pain needs that good wine

Let the stillness stop my sin

Change me, change me, born again

Spirit fill me with that residence

Christ in me, holy presence.

Expect less. Pay more.

Low expectations.

High investment.
