Sometimes life can be a burden
Tryna stay one step ahead
I feel the world upon my shoulders each time
I'm standing out on the edge
And my hopes have all deserted me
Like they washed away in the sand
And it's hurting my pride, tryna survive
But I know I stand a chance

When you lay your hands, oh yeah
'Cause it's the only thing I have
That still makes sense

[Chorus]
(Oh baby, when I'm calling out)
Give me love and affection
Keep telling me, show me the way
(Oh, if you see me falling down)
Lift me up from the shadows
Will you take me away to a better place
(And when I'm in my darkest hour)
You're by my side to turn the tide
Until the suffering fades
When life is getting me down, getting me down
I'm close to defeat
Come and lay your hands on me

Feel this road is getting longer now
And I'm too far away from home
Still I gotta keep on moving on
But I can't do it on my own

Baby, keep my head above water
Help me swim for my life
'Cause the game is getting harder
The strain is getting stronger
And I can only face the fight

When you lay your hands, oh yeah
'Cause it's the only thing I have
That still makes sense

[Chorus]

'Til I'm healed again
Rediscovered my strengths
Those bitter blues are gone
Oh, gone

[Chorus]

Come and lay your hands on me
