lyrics

GREAT REVELATION
I’ve been praying since October
That our troubles would be over
But I guess it don’t work that way
I’m still waiting for some great revelation
To show me the way

Thought I inherited your carefree disposition
But lately all I do is worry about things beyond my control
Promise me I shouldn’t wring my hands over nothing
Promise me these thoughts don’t have to corrode my soul
Can someone out there throw me a bone?

I’ve been holding out for something
To point out what I’ve been missing
And explain all my worries away
I’m still waiting for some great revelation
To show me the way

There’s just so much I’ll never know
So much I’ll never learn about you
Sometimes it just destroys me
To think of everything I’ll never see
Shelter me from the shadows left behind by your childhood
I need some clarity

What could be so bad that you’d hide it from me?
What are the words you won’t say?

I’m so scared that I’m colliding
With some secret you’ve been hiding
I just need to know it’s okay
I’m still waiting for some great revelation
To show me the way
