"Unforgetful You" by Jars of Clay

Recently, I went back to the music archives and pulled out an old album by Jars of Clay and listened to one of its singles, "Unforgetful You" and was challenged by its message.  I encourage you to give it a listen below followed by the lyrics.

I never minded calling You a King
If that meant that I could count on You
To give me everything
I never thought to ask You
I always thought You knew
It was never my intention to question You
You never minded calling me a child
Well, I guess that's how I acted all the while
But You live through every tantrum, You see through every lie
Though they seem to be more common
I just wanted You to know why oh why

Unforgetful You, unforgetful
Unforgetful You, so unforgetful

You never minded giving us the stars
Then showing us how blind and unaware of You we are
You painted me a picture and showed me how to see
Though I just won't behold it
Unless it pertains to me...
