When I Was God  

Music and Lyrics by Steve Epley


When I was God, I was the light

I was the void, the morning and night

Then I was sky, I was the rain

The deep blue ocean, the fertile plain

But I could not see me at all


Then I became stars, the sun and moon

I played the ocean, a rhythmic tune

Then I was life, I drank the rain

I could feel pleasure. I could feel pain.

But I could not see me at all.


Then I was man—knew what I knew

I could make words, to talk with you.

We talked about good, talked about bad.

Talked about happy—talked about sad.

But we could not explain God at all.


Then I was me, making a life 

With my box of thoughts, the joy and strife.

Then I heard a voice, deep in my heart.

Take a new step, make new start.


So I faced my fears, cried all my tears.

Killed a few monsters between my ears,

And I found I imagined it all,

Yes, I found I imagined it all.


So now I am working, trying to wake up.

Trying to drink, from Her loving cup.

Trying to see, past this illusion,

Trying to be, past this confusion.


The truth is whisper, born in forever.

I listen in Silence, and try to remember….

When I was God, when I was God,

When I was God, when I was God.
