..."If You don't know Jesus you could be the nicest man in Hell."(Nicest Man In Hell)
..."You didn't half-way die for me, so how can I half-way live for you?" (Half-Way)
..."You're the picture the artist couldn't paint, You're the song the singer couldn't find the words to sing, You're more lovely than the fragrance of perfume. The only word the I can find for something so beautiful is you"(You).
