Take me to your heart
 

Take me to your heart I need a harbour

Somewhere I can lay a weary head

Somewhere I can close my eyes in slumber

Somewhere I can sleep and wake refreshed

 

Take me to your heart I need a dwelling

Somewhere where my faults be less defined

Somewhere I can close my eyes believing

That you’ll be here tomorrow come the light

 

Take me to your heart I need compassion

Somewhere where forgiveness conquers blame

Somewhere where a kind word might address me

As a man who tried his best but mostly failed

 

Take me to your heart I need a refuge

Somewhere where there’s no shame in defeat

Somewhere where the phantoms may fall silent

Somewhere in a heart that beats for me
