Cover me - there’s a battlefield ahead.
Cover me - there’s an enemy that wants to have my head.

Why do You let evil have its way? How can You let orphans die in vain?
When will You give answers for the pain?
Is there a place where hope can still sustain? ...where hope can still sustain?

Cover me as I walk this out alone - as I search deserted streets -
for a place to call my own.
I’ve wandered over all the earth - like an angel without wings.
I’m a song without a voice. I’m a ghost without a grave.

Why do You let evil have its way? How can You let orphans die in vain?
When will You give answers for the pain?
Is there a place where hope can still sustain? ...where hope can still sustain?

So please come, take the burdens that have held me down so long... so long...

And if I scream Your name again, will You reach my bloody hands?
God, I’m holding on to You - for You can make me new.
If I scream Your name again, will You reach my bloody hands?
God, I’m holding to Your arms. I’ve been holding on so long.
(If I scream Your name again, will You reach my bloody hands?
God, I’m holding on to You - for You can make me new.)
I’ve been holding on so long.
(If I scream Your name again, will You reach my bloody hands?
God, I’m holding on to You - for You can make me new.)
I’ve been holding on so long.
