Surely there's a stream where I can set pace A depth where my strokes are not a big waste My feeble frame thus never out of place And my troubled ways sleeping in a nest. Surely there's a cave where I can find peace A sheltered space with none to let a hiss My fearful mind thus never out of ease And my twisted speech never kills a kiss. Surely there's a heart where I can find love A warm embrace where my touch is enough My doubtful mind thus never in the rough And my stunted hope sheltered in a cove. Surely you can be where my long search stops The very spot where my big shield drops My sickly heart exposed and very raw For you to water, for me true growth know.
