Some say I'm a dreamer,
don't know how I got this way.
Mama just thinks I'm crazy,
so there's not much left to say.

Well, I can't hide these feelings.
This heart's been restless
all my life.
And I can't seem to stop
this yearning;
this burning emptiness inside.

So let me feel the Spirit move,
and fill this broken heart
of mine.
ĎCause I've been running way
too long,
and there's nowhere left to hide.

So let me stand in silence,
while these tears run down
my face.
ĎCause tonite I need to know
how it feels,
to be in the grip of grace.

I know I donít deserve it.
Itís probably just as well.
Thereís nothing left of me to offer,
not as far as I can tell.

But I know I donít belong here.
This strange land is dark and cold.
I need someone whoíll watch over me,
and help me find my way back home.

So let me feel the Spirit move,
and touch this lonely heart of mine.
ĎCause Iíve been running way too long,
and thereís no place left to hide.

Oh, let me stand in silence.
Please wipe these tears from my face.
I donít wanna be anywhere,
but in the grip of grace.

Please don't let go,
I need to know
I'm in the grip of grace.

I kept wondering why that frisbee kept getting bigger and bigger....and then it hit me.

Ah, yes, that void God planted within our hearts, will not leave us content until we allow Him to fill it.

I liked this piece.

God bless,
Rae
