Love changes the world from black and white to color on “Michelangelo Sky” and “Colour Everywhere. “The Top-20 single “Absence of the Heart” finds a woman trying to reverse a romance’s downward spiral. Similarly, the singer is coaxed into missing a flight to solve relational woes (“People Miss Planes”). She forces a noncommittal male to fish or cut bait on “Make Up Your Mind.” On the title track, an omnipresent God watches over the faithful.
