  • Rain rain on my face
    It hasn't stopped
    Raining for days
    My world is a flood
    Slowly I become
    One with the mud

    But if I can't swim after 40 days
    And my mind is crushed
    By the crashing waves
    Lift me up so high
    That I cannot fall
    Lift me up
    Lift me up when I'm falling
    Lift me up I'm weak and I'm dying
    Lift me up I need you to hold me
    Lift me up and keep me from drowning again

    Down pour on my soul
    Splashing in the ocean
    I'm losing control
    Dark sky all around
    Can't feel my feet
    Touching the ground

    But if I can't swim after 40 days
    And my mind is crushed
    By the crashing waves
    Lift me up so high
    That I cannot fall
    Lift me up
    Lift me up when I'm falling
    Lift me up I'm weak and I'm dying
    Lift me up I need you to hold me
    Lift me up and keep me from drowning again

    Calm the storms that drench my eyes
    And dry the streams still flowing
    Casting down all waves of sin
    And guilt that overthrow me

    But if I can't swim after 40 days
    And my mind is crushed
    By the crashing waves
    Lift me up so high
    That I cannot fall
    Lift me up
    Lift me up when I'm falling
    Lift me up I'm weak and I'm dying
    Lift me up I need you to hold me
    Lift me up and keep me from drowning again

    Lift me up, when I'm falling
    Lift me up, I'm weak and I'm dying
    Lift me up, I need you to hold me
    Lift me up, and keep me from drowning again Writer/s: Charlie Lowell, Dan Haseltine, Matt Odmark, Stephen Daniel Mason

  • JoshCreed is Christian rock now? Think that P.O.D. would be a better example
  • Melissa from Waco, TxThis is a cool song. This is the first time I've heard this version. I'm more used to hearing this song done by VeggieTales. :)
  • Tom from Marble Falls, ArSomone told me the band intentionally tuned their instruments off true chord (a little bit) for this song.
