Four Hands on the Helm

Your daddy used to hit you
when you were small
You learned to build a colossal wall
all that rage was stored inside
Until my love became your battle cry

You fought for truth you fought for self
You clawed out of your citadel
The walls came down I helped you break
Now I’ll hold you steady when you start to shake

Reach for my hand and I will
Pull you up on board
Four hands on the helm
As we lose sight of the shore
Somewhere across the great divide
I heard your voice and you heard mine
Now We’ll guide each other better than before

When I was a child I felt numb
I learned to be a chameleon
They couldn’t see me or hear my scream
Then your love rebuilt my dreams

surge winds threw my ship off course
You raised my sails, we fought the war
You remind me that the calm is now
With Your healing hands soft on my brow

I’ll Reach for your hand and You will
Pull me up on board
Four hands on the helm
As we lose sight of the shore
Somewhere across the great divide
I heard your voice and you heard mine
Now we’ll guide each other better than before

The River starts In the mountain
runs out to meet the sea
Will it find it’s way to salt water ?
There’s no guarantee

Was it fate or god or magic?
(When we collided how we knew)
I don’t know if I believe all that
I’m just thankful to be with you
Yeah I’m thankful to be with you

Reach for my hand and I will
Pull you up on board
Four hands on the helm
As we lose sight of the shore
Somewhere across the great divide
I heard your voice and you heard mine
Now We’ll guide each other better than before
