Hey, it’s me
I’m sorry it’s so late
I can’t sleep
I knew You’d be awake (Psalm 121:4)
You’re always home
Waiting by the phone
For nights like these
When I’m feeling all alone

I wish it didn’t always
Have to be this way
I wish that I could talk to You
Face to face
But nothing compares to the way
You always listen and know just what to say

Hold my hand
I can’t stand alone
Here I am
Waiting for You to take me home

Oh, I just want to sing
I only wish there was a word
For what You mean to me
I would only say it once
In hushed tones
So it would not grow old
But all I have
Is “I love You”

You’re my Jesus, You’re my hero
Everything I wish that I could be

You’re the one who comforts me
When everyone is gone away
I can’t stand alone
Here I am
Waiting for You to take me home

And I will keep on singing
Because You hear me
And I will keep on smiling
Because You’re near me

I’ll sleep well on a promise tonight.

    General CommentA lot of their songs can be self-explanitory.
    Matthew 11:25-28.

    "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest" We can go to Jesus whenever, and this song I guess is about someone who is restless and goes to Jesus

    General CommentI love how when we have nothing else, we can always go to Jesus, and we realize that He's everything and He's all we need. And that we can go to Him anytime.
