  • I never dreamed I could cry so hard
    That ain't like a man
    I could fly like a bird somedays
    Had a place where I could land

    I could have sworn we were all locked in
    Ain't that what you said
    I never knew it could hurt so bad
    When the power of love is dead

    But giving into the nightime
    Ain't no cure for the pain
    You gotta wade into the water
    You gotta learn to live again

    Chorus

    And reach out for her healing hands
    Reach out for her healing hands
    There's a light, where the darkness ends,
    Touch me now and let me see again,
    Rock me now in your gentle healing hands

    I never knew love like poison
    That burned like a fire
    All I ever wanted was a reason
    To drowm in your eyes

    I never knew sleep so restless
    Empty arms so cold
    That's not the way it's supposed to be
    It ain't the spell that I was sold

    But giving into the nightime
    Ain't no cure for the pain
    You gotta wade into the water
    You gotta learn to live again

    And reach out for her healing hands
    Reach out for her healing hands
    There's a light, where the darkness ends,
    Touch me now and let me see again,
    Rock me now in your gentle healing hands

    But giving into the nightime
    Ain't no cure for the pain
    You gotta wade into the water
    You gotta learn to live again

    Reach out for her healing hands
    Reach out for her healing hands
    There's a light, where the darkness ends,
    Touch me now and let me see again,
    Rock me now in your gentle healing hands

    Reach out for her healing hands
    Reach out for her healing hands
    There's a light, where the darkness ends,
    Touch me now and let me see again,
    Rock me now in your gentle healing hands

    Reach out for her healing hands
    Reach out for her healing hands
    There's a light, where the darkness ends,
    Touch me now and let me see again,
    Rock me now in your gentle healing hands Writer/s: BERNIE TAUPIN, ELTON JOHN
