I pray for your help
I pray for your help
I pray for your help
Not anything else
I pray for your help
Do you hear anything?
I’m standing on my knees
I lack the discipline
It’s not I don’t believe
Show me just anything
I need to feel the dream

But at times
I’m scared
I lift my hair on top of my head
All I want is to surrender
So I can finally rest
I trust my faith
I don’t have anything else
All I want is to surrender
So I can finally rest
