Whenever I Say Your Name

Album: Sacred Love (2003)
Charted: 60
  • Whenever I say your name, whenever I call to mind your face
    Whatever bread's in my mouth, whatever the sweetest wine that I taste
    Whenever your memory feeds my soul, whatever got broken becomes whole
    Whenever I'm filled with doubts that we will be together

    Wherever I lay me down, wherever I put my head to sleep
    Whenever I hurt and cry, whenever I got to lie awake and weep
    Whenever I kneel to pray, whenever I need to find a way
    I'm calling out your name

    Whenever those dark clouds hide the moon
    Whenever this world has gotten so strange
    I know that something's gonna change
    Something's gonna change

    Whenever I say your name,
    Whenever I say your name,
    I'm already praying, I'm already praying
    I'm already filled with a joy that I can't explain
    Wherever I lay me down, wherever I rest my weary head to sleep
    Whenever I hurt and cry, whenever I got to lie awake and weep
    Whenever I'm on the floor
    Whatever it was that I believed before
    Whenever I say your name, whenever I say it loud, I'm already praying

    Whenever this world has got me down, whenever I shed a tear
    Whenever the TV makes me mad, whenever I'm paralyzed with fear
    Whenever those dark clouds fill the sky, whenever I lose the reason why
    Whenever I'm filled with doubts that we will be together

    Whenever the sun refuse to shine, whenever the skies are pouring rain
    Whatever I lost I thought was mine whenever I close my eyes in pain
    Whenever I kneel to pray, whenever I need to find a way
    I'm calling out your name

    Whenever this dark begins to fall
    Whenever I'm vulnerable and small
    Whenever I feel like I could die
    Whenever I'm holding back the tears that I cry

    Whenever I say your name, whenever I call to mind your face
    I'm already praying
    Whatever bread's in my mouth, whatever the sweetest wine that I taste
    Wherever I lay me down, wherever I rest my weary head to sleep
    Whenever I hurt and cry, whenever I'm forced to lie awake and have to weep
    Whenever I'm on the floor
    Whatever it was that I believed before
    Whenever I say your name, whenever I say it loud, I'm already praying

    Whenever I say your name,
    No matter how long it takes,
    One day we'll be together

    Whenever I say your name,
    Let there be no mistake
    That day will last forever

    Whenever I say your name,
    No matter how long it takes,
    One day we'll be together Writer/s: Gordon Sumner
