I lift my eyes
So high, 'til all I see is white
I hold my tongue
Your perfect timing
Doesn't make it right

When did I have a say
In the matter anyway?
When did you ever say
That your ways were my ways?

[Chorus:]
Selah, selah,
You give,
You give and take away
Selah, selah,
Peace be still,
'Til I see your face, oh

You turned your back,
You knew this cup would never pass
You love so much
You saved the blood
That I tried to corrupt

Who am I to beg
Just dust, it met your breath,
When I demand you explain
I am as you're afraid

[Chorus:]
Selah, selah,
You give,
You give and take away
Selah, selah,
Peace be still,
'Til I see your face, oh

Where was I
When you made
The foundations procreate
Selah…

[Chorus:]
Selah, selah,
You give,
You give and take away
Selah, oh, selah,
Peace be still,
'Til I see your face

    General Comment"I am as you're afraid"

    sounds more like

    "I AM is your refrain"

    to me.

    Also, I think "procreate" should be "proclaim."
