The water feels cool on my face

As it falls from above

Telling me I belong

Telling me that the sky won’t fall 

I’m waiting for something greater

And I’m trying to be strong

I just feel so small

Sometime so unable 

So come and take these chains that surround me

Help me find my way through the mystery 

I just don’t know why

I am feeling so blue

I’ll just close my eyes

And all I see is you 

So come and take these chains that surround me

Help me find my way through the mystery 

And when I am cold You warm my heart

You pick me up to the place where I needed to be 

So come and take these chains that surround me

Help me find my way through the mystery
