lyrics

We Need Your Love

Oh Papa oh Papa, Holding me up papa
Filling my cup papa, I need your love
Look at my sweet, Papa, guide her little feet, Papa
Hold her up and never drop her. We need your love

Who can sail a ship without the water all around?
And who can walk a mile without the whole-hearted help of the ground
We need your love, every day of our life as we live it
And like the earth bears up our feet, with every step, you give it

Oh Papa oh Papa, look at all the folks Papa
Their hearts are broke papa, We need your love
Dear Papa, near Papa, always sincere Papa
Take away the fear papa, we need your love

Who can be afraid within the wings of the Almighty embrace?
Show me the tear, that won’t be dried by the sun of His luminous face
Let your calm fall on our eyes like the blanket of night settles down
Let your love swell in our hearts and shine, like a golden crown

Look at 'em all, look at all the folks, in a million ways we want to be good
We want to be understood
Instead we’re weary, hurt, lost,
Double-crossed, always exhausted
Lookin to be, lookin to be the boss, hey,
We need your…

Love…

Cleans up your wounds
And Love
Makes room for you
And Love
Is never far
And Love
Sees you who you are
