lyrics

You hold our lives in your hands
In ways that we can’t always understand
Your love can be a mystery
Sometimes the hardest thing to do is just believe

In the desert
In the darkness
In the silence
You ask me to bring
Yeah, all my questions
In surrender
And call you king

So when we doubt and when we fail
When it seems your love is just a fairytale
Come lift our heads, come lift our eyes
Come remind us of the smile you like to hide

In the desert
In the darkness
In the silence
You ask me to bring
Yeah, all my questions
In surrender
And call you king

When you prayed in the night
Daddy let this troubled hour pass me by
You shed our tears and cried our cries
Embraced the black hole at the heart of all our lives

In the desert
In the darkness
In the silence
You ask me to bring
Yeah, all my questions
In surrender
And call you king

In the desert
In the darkness
In the silence
You ask me to bring
Yeah, all my questions
All my questions
All my questions

Like why did you go?
Why didn’t you stay?
Why did you leave us this way?
Out in the cold
Out on our own
Discarded outcast alone
You say just wait
But we need you now
What kind of fucked up father are you anyhow?
Who pushes his kids
Over the edge
Demanding what we can never ever give

People will say
I’ve crossed a line
That I’ve mistaken your place for mine
But I call this love
And I call this faith
I call it hanging on to the promises you made

And damn you, I surrender
And damn you, I surrender
