Time after time, I've turned away from you, When all I had to do was surrender to your love. You've seen me stumble, you've watched me fall, And though I heard you call, I just wasn't strong enough. But there's an emptiness inside without you in my life: Lord, I hope you hear my prayer tonight. Won't you blind my eyes when all I see is temptation. Break my stride when I'm runnin' from the truth. An' tie my hands when I reach out with desire. Go on an' do what you must do, Whatever you must take me through till I turn to you. Yeah. I know that others fall down on their knees for mercy, But you may have to hurt me before I see the light. 'Cause I've grown as far as I can go by myself: I need your help if I'm gonna get it right. Tired of strugglin' every day, I wanna know the way, So now the only prayer I wanna pray: Is just blind my eyes when all I see is temptation. Break my stride when I'm runnin' from the truth. An' tie my hands when I reach out with desire. Go on an' do what you must do, Whatever you must put me through till I turn to you. Yeah. Blind my eyes; Break my stride; Whatever you want to be denied; Whatever you must do. An' tie my hands; Ignore my demands; Build a wall that stands so high, I can't get through, Till I turn to you, yeah. Until I turn to you. 'Cause I wanna turn to you, Oh, yeah. Oooh. Oooh.
