Holy Hands

5 Strings 2016

Have we been here before?
How did we cross this bridge again?
And all the while, I've been living my life
With my eyes shut to the light
And my hands down by my side.

And if I raised my hands
Or stayed up all night to pray
Would you do all you can to help me raise my holy hands
And if the trumpet sounds
And I am left behind,
Tell them of me, in heaven you'll be.
So help me raise my holy hands.

Don't you tell me now,
Your life's worth more than mine.
You cannot see inside my mind.
And I want to stand there face to face with love himself.
When I come home, I'll leave my demons on the shelf.

My name, it doesn't matter in this life,
'Cause I'm bound for another.
