Place In This World

Album: Go West Young Man (1990)
Charted: 6
  • The wind is moving
    But I am standing still
    A life of pages
    Waiting to be filled
    A heart that's hopeful
    A head that's full of dreams
    But this becoming
    Is harder than it seems
    Feels like I'm

    Looking for a reason
    Roaming through the night to find
    My place in this world
    My place in this world
    Not a lot to lean on
    I need Your light to help me find
    My place in this world
    My place in this world

    If there are millions
    Down on their knees
    Among the many
    Can you still hear me?
    Hear me asking
    Where do I belong?
    Is there a vision
    That I can call my own?
    Show me I'm

    Looking for a reason
    Roaming through the night to find
    My place in this world
    My place in this world
    Not a lot to lean on
    I need Your light to help me find
    My place in this world
    My place in this world

    Looking for a reason
    Roaming through the night to find
    My place in this world
    My place in this world
    Not a lot to lean on
    I need Your light to help me find
    My place in this world
    My place in this world

    Looking for a reason
    Roaming through the night to find
    My place in this world
    My place in this world Writer/s: MICHAEL W. SMITH, AMY GRANT, WAYNE KIRKPATRICK
