"...in the end, you've got to become the change you want to see in the world."

I’m floating

I’m floating on air

I’m drifting away.

The wind pushes

It pushes me down

So I can no longer see your way.

I’m falling

I’m falling through clouds

I’m screaming you’re name.

The claws tear at me

Their nails piercing my skin

And all I feel is pain.

But you grab my hand,

And you pull me back up again.

Oh, you hold me close

So I don't let you go.

I'm trying...

I'm trying to keep hold of you,

But everything around me is pressuring me to leave.

But you hold my hand

And you pull me towards you again.

Oh, you hold me close

So I don't let you go.

There's just one thing

That I must say,

I'm glad you came but

I am scared that

I will walk away again.

Please don't leave me.

Keep your heart in sync with mine.

Please fight them off so they won't grab me.

Please stay by my side.

You hold my hand.

And you keep me towards you to stand against them.

So I'll fight with you, Lord,

And I'll never let go again.

I'm trying to keep God in my heart, stay on his path, follow his commandments, but I keep sinning, keep pulling away. I need God to pull me back again.
