at night
when the night is
still in the room
and i can't understand
help me understand
the walls that i've built
up like a tomb
they hold me back again
and keep me from your hand
but i'm waiting for you

at night
when my thoughts are deep
on the ocean floor
and shipwrecked on the reef
wave-tossed like a leaf
i know that there's a rope
but i can't reach for it
i have such small belief
help my unbelief
and i'm waiting for you
