HELP ME BELIEVE...



Current mood: Aware...Conscious...Sighted...



So here it is...

And, I don't begin to claim to know what is going on in the heart, mind, and spirit of Mr. Franklin. But, what I do know is that his lyrics are transparent, his writing, anointed, and that this song reflects my current struggle and the whole of my heart...

Please LISTEN and be blessed...I know I was...still working on that thing called faith and that even harder thing called forgiveness (for more people and wrongs done than I even care remember)... I guess it's true what they say...'to whom much is given, much is required....' - or more simply stated, in a matter of speaking - 'no cross, no crown'...

Anyway...

This is where I'm living...a lesson I have yet to master...and one that I continue to pay for dearly...so let's hope I get it right and soon... Because the sins of others should NOT hold me back...

Namaste!

HELP ME BELIEVE

(Verse I)
I wanna believe
But I'm having a hard time seeing past what I see right now
I see right now

I wanna be free
But when I try to fly I realize I don't know how
No one showed me how

Wish I could see
That this mess I'm in will really work out for my good
You said it would

So, if you can hear me
Can you give me a sign, 'cause I don't feel you like I should
Please if you could

(Bridge I)
My faith is almost gone
I can't hold on much longer
Take his cup from me

(Chorus)
Help me believe
Can I believe?
Let me believe
I wanna believe!
I'm no good on my own
Please give me another chance

It's hard to believe
In what I can't see
To give you my will
'Cause Your will is better for me

You can look in my eyes and see
I wanna believe

(Verse II)
I wanna believe
If I never hear I'm sorry I can let it go
Gotta let you go

'Cause it's killing me
Jesus, You know how it feels 'cause you've been hurt before
Don't wanna hurt no more

(Bridge II)
I'm trying to hear you speak
But my heart is growing weaker
Take his cup from me

(Chorus II)
I'm trying to believe
But it's hard to believe
Help me believe
See, I need to believe
I've been here before
And I can't take that hurt again

It's hard to believe
In what I can't see
To give you my will
'Cause Your will is better for me

You can look in my eyes and see
I wanna believe

(Verse III)
I wanna believe
When I close my eyes on this side, I'll wake up with You
More in love with you

And finally You
Will say my race is over and my work is through
'Cause I believed in You...

(Bridge III)
I know dark days will come
And some days there will be no sunshine
And You're too far to see

(Chorus)
Help me believe
Can I believe?
Let me believe
I wanna believe!
I'm no good on my own
Please give me another chance

It's hard to believe
In what I can't see
To give you my will
'Cause Your will is better for me

You can look in my eyes and see
I wanna believe
