c.s. lewis song lyrics – brooke fraser

if i find in myself desires nothing in this world can satisfy,
i can only conclude that i was not made for here
if the flesh that i fight is at best only light and momentary,
then of course i’ll feel nude when to where i’m destined i’m compared

[chorus:]
speak to me in the light of the dawn
mercy comes with the morning
i will sigh and with all creation groan as i wait for hope to come for me

am i lost or just less found? on the straight or on the roundabout of the wrong way?
is this a soul that stirs in me, is it breaking free, wanting to come alive?
cos my comfort would prefer for me to be numb
and avoid the impending birth of who i was born to become

[chorus]

[bridge:]
for we, we are not long here
our time is but a breath, so we better breathe it
and i, i was made to live, i was made to love, i was made to know you
hope is coming for me
hope, he’s coming
