Lyrics

Last Prayer (Nita Hope)
Listen,
As deep as I can reach,
You?re the constant that I know
The fixed and truest thing I see
You are illumination

I wait for signs of life from you
The rush, the fear, the corner turned
You sing to me and singe my veins
Burn off the tethers to my soul
And I crave peace

You know me
You know how frightened I can be
The clamor in this world, it amazes me
Oh, I watch for you until I ache
Shed these weary bones and carry me away
And I crave peace

And in that moment
I?ll feel your touch upon me
As cold as water on my tongue
I?ll reach for you
And you will ease me
And I crave peace
