My lonely spirit 
Needs you to guide me 
To stand beside me 
But I still fear you. 
Will I surrender to your arms? 
My heart has weakened 
My heart has wandered 
My constant longing 
Please come and save me. 
I will surrender to your arms. 

When I let down my guard will you be there? 
These are the thoughts I’m saying in a prayer. 
Will my faith completely save my soul? 
Is there room for you inside my world? 
You are eternal. 
I’m only mortal. 
Will I learn all your ways? 

The gifts you’ve shown me 
There’s so much beauty 
It might just heal me 
To surrender to your arms.

Lessons Learned

Lessons Learned         words and music by Rick Maltese © 2011

There's so much more to life than living lives apart.
We all are blessed with what it takes. How do we start?
To find the path to make it work, open your heart.

Open your heart and once again,
Open your heart these are the Lessons Learned.

When justice will not show it's face, open the door.
The waves don't stop when they have found their way to shore.
Just pray once more and once again, just pray once more.

Just pray once more, and pray again.
Just pray once more. These are the lessons learned

What seems like just an ember fading in the dark.
In time the light will shine so bright, a fixed mark.
If over time the light should fade, just save a spark

Just save a spark, and once again,
Just save a spark these are the lessons learned.
