love lift me lyrics – amanda marshall

love lift me

somebody told me
once in a lifetime
destiny finds you and blows you away
spins you in circles
pulls you in pieces
bleeds you like jesus
and goes on it’s way
but it’s oh so simple sometimes
just to let your heart open wide
if you wanna get heaven
then you gotta take the ride

[chorus]
love lift me
wherever you are
convince me
i’m safe in your arms
love lift me
make sense of it all
teach me to fly
and don’t let me fall

somebody told me
love makes you stupid
makes you go crazy
makes you go blind
comes uninvited
and leaves when it wants to
calls you at midnight and ties up your line
but it’s oh so sweet when it’s right
and you swear you won’t but you might
gotta fumble in the dark if you wanna see the light

[chorus]
love lift me
wherever you are
convince me
i’m safe in your arms
love lift me
make sense of it all
teach me to fly
and don’t let me fall

and when it’s all said and done
it’s just the same for everyone
your busy making your plans
love’s like a bird baby
flying out of your hands

and it’s oh so hard to explain (we don’t know nothin’)
when your heart gets hold of your brain (but still we try)
better batten down the hatches
here we go again

[chorus 2]
love lift me, wherever you are
convince me, i’m safe in your arms
love lift me, i’m waiting on you
cause nothing can lift me the way that you do
love lift me, love lift me
love lift me (only love can take me higher)
i wanna fly…
