WORDS

I’LL BE YOUR EYES

We shoot our sins into the sky. 

Send our pain and trouble up above.

Filling up the holes inside the light. 

Tap the holy water of its love.

 

Take it off my hands. Spirit move me.

Steady me, cleanse my soul. I’m out of control.

 

I’ll be your eyes when you can’t bear to see. 

I’ll be your words when you can hardly speak.  

I’ll be your ears when you block out the sound.

Trust in me. 

 

You’ve been there when I’ve needed you. 

When I felt as cold as coins in ice.

When I wondered how low I could go. 

When the well ran dust and dirty bone.

 

Take it off my hands. Spirit move me.

Steady me, cleanse my soul. I’m out of control.

 

You grit your teeth, you lie in wait.

Believe your life’s one long mistake.

You can be your own best friend or trust in me.

I want to hold you up when you fall.

 

I’ll be your eyes when you can’t bear to see. 

I’ll be your words when you can hardly speak.  

I’ll be your ears when you block out the sound.

Trust in me.
