lyrics

When it’s all about to crumble
When I stumble and I fall
Breathe in deep and thank the stars above
You listen when I talk

Funny how it’s easier to reach you
When I’m on my knees
I could really use your help right now
Won’t you take a walk with me

I love the way you listen to me
You gimme’ grace to speak my heart
Somehow when I tell you what I’m thinkin’ about
The night don’t seem so dark

When I’m afraid there’s something I can’t do
You show me that I can
I’m hopin’ that someday I’m gonna’ be
The man you think I am

Knowing that I’ll never be alone
Makes my life worth living
I feel your gentle touch beside me
And know that I’m forgiven

I love the way you listen to me
You gimme’ grace to speak my heart
Somehow when I tell you what I’m thinkin’ about
The night don’t seem so dark

When I’m afraid there’s something I can’t do
You show me that I can
I’m hopin’ that someday I’m gonna’ be
The man you think I am

When you smile I know I’ll never fail
Every time you wag your tail
