Tired

Fallin’
Lord we don’t even know we’re loosing ground
it slips so gently away
prop us on the leanin’ side Lord
lest there come a day
when we topple like a giant old oak
whose roots no longer hold
that good ground where it’s seed lay long ago.
Prop us on the leanin’ side Lord
you know we’re prone to fall
like a baby takin’ first steps.
were we just born to fall ?
You know I’m so tired of trying not to fall
Prop me on the leanin’ side Lord and
change this heart of all you see that
needs a changin’ I’ll be waitin’ till you do and
just prop me on the leanin’ side Lord
until you got me through.
Prop me on the leanin’ side Lord
against the winds that blow
bendin’ me in ways that ain’t your own
Against the currents of these times
against the light I find that doesn’t come
to me from around your throne.
Prop me on the leanin’ side Lord
like an old and weathered fence
My pickets are near spent , my post
are rotted out, I tell ya I got doubts
I’ll even be a standin’ by the time the next storm’s through.
Prop me on the leanin’ side Lord, but if it must come true
just let me fall then by your grace lift me up anew.
I tell ya I’m so tired of tryin’ not to fall
prop me on the leanin’ side Lord and
change this heart of all that needs a changin’.
I’ll be waitin’ till you do,
just prop me on the leanin’ side Lord
until you got me through.

Searching high and low no matter where i go it always seems the same: shades of grey. Or, was that gray?
