My life is like a racing car hurtling towards the wall At the speed of sound My time has been so finely tuned But I've never seen a human being so tightly wound At times it seems beyond belief I just need a bit of relief Like a war-weary soldier Marching up and over the edge Take my hand and pull me up cause I'm falling too fast Somehow I've lost my way - I'm cryin' save me
Chorus Can you hear me...I'm calling out I'm crying out...a cry for love I can feel you...you're touching me You healing me...my cry for love
I will be the first to admit I don't have the strength to handle it alone anymore I don't have to fret, don't have to explain All my worrying's in vain I'm not alone anymore
Why is this so hard to believe What is mine is mine to freely receive Like the changing of seasons This is the beauty of the word And for all that I have seen and heard Oh I want to come home Somehow I'll make my way - my way home to you
Bridge: Oh Father hear my call (Oh Father hear my call) I know you'll catch me when I fall Oh Father hear my call I know you'll catch me when I fall Oh I pray that you'll hold me now Hold me And take my fear away
I'm cryin' save me Oh I know that you can hear me Hear me crying out for love Oh I know that you can feel my cry for love...ooh...
I can feel you - you're calling out You're crying out - a cry for love I can feel you - you're touching me You're healing me - my cry for love
