Lyrics

Cold as an anvil, dark and alone;
Unforgiving, without mercy; a heart harder than a stone
Then again, just like a candle – warmed & softened by the sun…
The crush of confrontation will quickly make me come undone.

Somewhere in between, I’ve become lukewarm & wrecked with doubt.
Deep in compromise’s chasm; I just want to spit me out.

So, who do I turn to now,
When I can’t even trust myself?
Whether I rise or fall…
It seems like there’s no one else;
Who’ll brave this stormy sea
And say a prayer for me.

A tower built on contradiction with a cornerstone of sand,
I have made my brother stumble;
Yet I’m not certain how to stand
(On my own)
I’ve coddled consternation and I’ve been paralyzed by fear;
Always fighting for acceptance…doesn’t anybody hear?

So, who do I turn to now,
When I can’t even help myself?
Whether I rise or fall…
It seems like there’s no one else;
Who’ll brave this stormy sea
And say a prayer for me.

(But…) You’ve been knocking on the door of my life
Waiting for me to let You in.
Your promise to refine me; to love & redefine me
And give me the vision to see
What You want me to be…

It’s You who I turn to now,
I cannot survive by myself.
Whether I rise or fall…
It’s just You and no one else;
Who calms this stormy sea
And saves a place for me.
