Lyrics:

Leave your cross and this crown of thorns
Where the road to forgiveness begins
Hold me down with your healing hands
As the scars turn to words on my skin
In the name of love and glory
You lose more than you win
I wouldn't change a single thing

I believed in your crazy dreams
I believed in the faith that you hold
I was down, baby, I was out
On the edge, when you couldn't save my soul
Passing through on Damascus Avenue
I was waiting for a sign in the sky
But my answers never come so easily

All your saints and angels
Keep you on your knees
Take my hand and stand up in front of me
Leave your prayers unanswered
The sun will rise again
And you will know the truth - it will set you free
Amen
Amen
Amen

Neon light burning through the night
On the bed here still waiting for your call
Crying out in this motel night
But in the end your silence says it all
Of all the pieces we leave behind
You pick your heart and you carry on
It just hurts for a little while

Chorus
Bridge
Chorus



In the night I whispered your name


You were there
Follow me
Hold your

ask and it will be given, look and you will find me

miracle, sacrifice, save, salvation, spirit

Every day is a chance to make amends

We have nothing but each other to believe in

The little miracles that we miss every day: children play; your yellow dress in the sun; the songs that lift you; the ones who need you; a path of clothes on the floor; moments of weakness, moments of strength

A child in his father's arms

You can't love what you can't lose

Lower your eyes
