lyrics

Let a wind come
Let a wind come blow it all away
Let a rainstorm
Let a rainstorm swallow me
Can’t you do that?
Can’t you hide me, God?
Can’t you…

Save me from you
(save me from you)
Sweep me someplace you can’t see
(Hide me some place)
I am known here
(God help me I’m known)

Open eye, open eye staring down on me.
Yellow sky, yellow sky staring down on me.
I am known for what I am.
I am known by you
(Let a wind come and blow it all away)
I am known by you
(Let a rain storm, let a wind come, and blow it all away)
I am known by you
(Let a rain storm, let a wind come, and blow it all away)
Can’t you…

Save me from you
(save me from you)
Sweep me someplace you can’t see
(Hide me some place)
I am known here
(I am known by you.)

Let a wind come
Let a wind come, blow it all away.
Blow it all, all away.
