Lyrics

Rain, rain on my face
Hasn't stopped raining for days
My world is a flood
Slowly I become one with the mud

But if I can't swim after 40 days
And my mind is crushed by the crashing waves
Lift me up
So high that I cannot fall
Lift me, oh
Lift me up

When I'm falling
Lift me up
I'm weak and I'm dying
Lift me up
I need you to hold me
Lift me up
And keep me from drowning again

Downpour on my soul
Splashing in the ocean, I'm losing control
Dark sky all around
Can't feel my feet touching the ground

But if I can't swim after 40 days
And my mind is crushed by the crashing waves
Lift me up
So high that I cannot fall
Lift me, oh
Lift me up

When I'm falling
Lift me up
I'm weak and I'm dying
Lift me up
I need you to hold me
Lift me up
And keep me from drowning again

Calm the storms that drench my eyes
And dry the streams still flowing
Casting down all waves of sin
And guilt that overthrow me

If I can't swim after 40 days
And my mind is crushed by the crashing waves
Lift me up
So high that I cannot fall
Lift me, oh
Lift me up

When I'm falling
Lift me up
I'm weak and I'm dying
Lift me up
I need you to hold me
Lift me up
And keep me from drowning again

Lift me up
When I'm falling
Lift me up
I'm weak and I'm dying
Lift me up
I need you to hold me
Lift me up
And keep me from drowning again
