You can hear me call your name
But I haven't said a single word tonight
Like a bird that sails a thermal sky
Trusting the invisible
How can I fall?
How can I fail?
When I'm Jonah inside the whale.
So I cry out like a baby
Because I know you'll hear my words
And I can get tomorrow
If you hold on to this heart of mine
You can hear my cry for freedom
As I learn to trust the living that's inside
In a world that sells a pack of lies
And draws me to my ego
How can I fall
How can I fail
When I'm Jonah inside the whale
And I know you're always with me
Even though you can't be heard
A perfect understanding
As you breathe into this heart of mine
So the fox is in the hole again
The hounds are at the door
News paper stories
Lying more and more
There's a little girl starting school today
To learn the whole thing over
But how can she fall
How can she fail
When she's Jonah inside the whale.
