Pour Your Love All Over Me

I’ve got this longing deep inside

Oh Father, can you hear me cry?

Are you really there?

And do you really care for me?

How I long with all my soul

For you to come and make me whole

 

Pour your love all over me

Drown me in a river of mercy

Come and fill this emptiness

Reach out and touch me

Pick me up and hold me, your child

Tell me it will be alright

 

So many nights I’ve cried alone

As I’ve journeyed down this road

Afraid to share my dreams

But things are not what they seem

Let me know that you are near

Because I know that you do hear

 

Pour your love all over me

Drown me in a river of mercy

Come and fill this emptiness

Reach out and touch me

Pick me up and hold me, your child

Tell me it will be alright

 

I’m very desperate for you

I want to see your spirit move

I will fall to my knees again

Just to know you more, my friend

 

Pour your love all over me

Drown me in a river of mercy

Come and fill this emptiness

Reach out and touch me

Pick me up and hold me, your child

Tell me it will alright

 

Pick me up and hold me, your child

Tell me it will be alright

      Thank you. I remember the night I wrote this, Phyllis. Way back in late 2000 or 2001. And I remember feeling lost and lonely.

    Nicely emotive plea Shannon, to find meaning in life and be whole. The answers are within, always, and acceptance of the true self, the appreciation of what life is. Cheers!

      It’s funny that people always say the answers are within, and yet we are not always still enough to pay attention. Cheers to you.

      Hi, John. (I almost called you Jodah.) This was put to song shortly after I wrote it. And I found that others connected to it that way, too.
