flood lyrics – jars of clay

rain, rain on my face
it hasn’t stopped raining for days
my world is a flood
slowly i become one with the mud

[chorus:]

but if i can’t swim after forty days
and my mind is crushed by the thrashing waves
lift me up so high that i cannot fall
lift me up
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 – keep me from drowning again

downpour on my soul
splashing in the ocean, i’m losing control
dark sky all around
i can’t feel my feet touching the ground

[chorus]

calm the storms that drench my eyes
dry the streams still flowing
cast down all the waves of sin
and guilt that overthrow me

[chorus]

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 – keep me from drowning again
