Thicker Skin

I noticed that You left me with nothing to lose
These scars bleed and I’m a dried-up seed
Heal my heartache and tear apart the bad news
Oh Lord, I’m sorry for being full of greed
Wintertime has swept against my skin…
I shutter…shocked by the coldness…
Please forgive me for that one wretched sin
Shaking uncontrollably…in distress…

1-2-3-4-5-6-7
7-6-5-4-3-2-1
Hmm…
Hmm…
Oh…
Oh…
So lost and speechless…

(CH) You’re my sweetheart night and day
Night and day
I need to have thicker skin these days or I’ll break out in tears
I’ll break out in tears
For years, I’ve been led astray I must say
I must say
I will not be furious and I will face my fears today…are you all ears?
Are you all ears?

I look up to You sometimes
I wish I could look up to You always
I look down, for I’m so afraid
I’m so ashamed…let the hopelessness fade
Quenched in quietude
Quenched in quietude
Don’t desert me or I’ll be forever lonely
Anxious because of our departure
Today is the day to surrender to the frozen desire
That scorches my soul 

1-2-3-4-5-6-7
7-6-5-4-3-2-1
Hmm…
Hmm…
Oh…
Oh…
So lost and breathless…

(CH)

My shadow of sorrow chased me around the place
Isolated in my own home and scared of the dark
Don’t forget me and please do forgive me for not having Your grace
You didn’t leave me without a trace and I am as strong as Noah’s ark
I need you by my side
I have one more chance to tell you…with my might
That you have tried…
You have tried to shine bright tonight…this night…
Quenched in quietude
Quenched in quietude

1-2-3-4-5-6-7
7-6-5-4-3-2-1
Hmm…
Hmm…
Oh…
Oh…
So lost and courageous… 

(CH) X2

Hand me your handkerchief,
For these tears fall down to the floor
Oh Lord, give me relief, not grief
You are the one I adore and you give me wings to soar
Pondering about you more and more…
I shouldn’t doubt you anymore…
But have faith that you are there…
There’s hope in store and there’s plenty to share
There’s hope in store and I’m dancing without a care
I’m dancing without a care
1-2-3-4-5-6-7
7-6-5-4-3-2-1
Hmm…
Hmm…
Oh…
Oh…
So lost and clueless
