till i turn to you lyrics – kathy mattea

time after time, i’ve turned away from you
when all i had to do was surrender to your love
you’ve seen me stumble, you’ve watched me fall
and though i heard you call, i just wasn’t strong enough
but there’s an emptiness inside without you in my life
lord, i hope you hear my prayer tonight

won’t you blind my eyes when all i see is temptation
break my stride when i’m runnin’ from the truth
an’ tie my hands when i reach out with desire
go on an’ do what you must do
whatever you must put me through, till i turn to you, yeah

i know others fall down on their knees for mercy
but you may have to hurt me before i see the light
’cause i’ve gone as far as i can go all by myself
you know i need your help if i’m gonna get it right
tired of strugglin’ every day, lord i wanna know the way
so, now the only prayer i wanna pray

is just blind my eyes when all i see is temptation
break my stride when i’m runnin’ from the truth
an’ tie my hands when i reach out with desire
go on an’ do what you must do
whatever you must put me through, till i turn to you, yeah

blind my eyes, break my stride
let every want be denied, whatever you must do
an’ tie my hands, ignore my demands
build a wall that stands so high, i can’t get through
till i turn to you, till i turn to you, oh yeah, till i turn to you, till i turn to you
