Shipwrecked
Soraya
 

Drifting in a crashing storm
My soul falling to the ocean floor
Clouds smother a helpless sky
Donít know where Iím heading or what Iíve left behind

Canít tell if itís morning or if thereís a moon in the sky
Canít tell if its tomorrow or if Iím lost in time
Showing no mercy the tide strikes me more
Knocking all Iíve ever known ashore

Leaving me barren, flesh and bones
My will to fight escapes from every pore
Logic has abandoned my weary mind
Iím shackled to the pain
Canít move my life

In an instant I hear a voice
I feel a hand guiding mine
All the weight of my body
Floats away like a feather in flight
In an instant the rays of the sun
Burn holes through the darkened sky
All that exists for me
Is the warmth of that light

Hovering around me I see those Iíve adored
Who lived in such pain and now suffer no more
Rescuing me on their wings I collapse
Iím out of harmís way and I never look back

I know Iím not dreaming Iíve never felt so awake
I know Iím not crazy life has never made so much sense
I know there is more waiting for me
I know Iíve got so much more to give

I fill my lungs with the air that they need
I feel the salt piercing my skin
Everything I am turns to black and white
I surrender to this truth and I simply fight

In an instant I hear a voice
I feel a hand guiding mine
All the weight of my body

Floats away like a feather in flight
In an instant the rays of the sun
Burn holes through the darkened sky
All that exists for me
Is the warmth of that light

In the horizon I see a glimpse of a beach
The palms are like dots yet I know I will reach
Iím barely skimming the crest of the waves
The thrust of my faith leaves my past in the wake
I channel my thoughts towards this promised land
Nothing in this world will block the path of my plan
The frequencyís high I cannot hear despair
I believe, I rejoice, nothing else can compare

In an instant I hear a voice
I feel a hand guiding mine
All the weight of my body
Floats away like a feather in flight
In an instant the rays of the sun
Burn holes through the darkened sky
All that exists for me
Is the warmth of that light
