THE FALL

THE FALL

Oh lord, I turn to you in desperation
Found no relief in empty recitations
Try to release my burdens and surrender
But feel as though I’m merely a pretender

CHORUS
There in the darkness he’s calling oh calling
Can’t reach his hand as I’m falling oh falling

Down on my knees with hands in supplication
Still no response or sudden revelation
Make known your presence now as I am pleading
Offer your healing hand as I lay bleeding

CHORUS
There in the darkness he’s calling oh calling
Can’t reach his hand as I’m falling oh falling

BRIDGE
Turn my face
Towards the sky
Feeling forsaken
Broken down
Paralyzed
Where is my shepherd?
Grace me with
Your guiding light
Hedge of protection
Fumbling
Through endless night
Carry me over

(Hail mother Mary full of grace
Been so long since I’ve seen your face)

Hail mother Mary hear my prayer
Send me a sign that you are there

Hail mother Mary send a sign
This pain is part of your design

Hail mother Mary grant me peace
And grant the darkness be released

Hail Mary here now in my fall
I beg you help me through it all
