Lyric "Word On A Wing"

"Word On A Wing"


In this age of grand illusion
You walked into my life
out of my dreams
I don't need another change
Still you forced away
into my scheme of things



You say we're growing,
growing heart and soul
In this age of grand illusion
You walked into my life
out of my dreams
Sweet name, you're born once again for me
Sweet name, you're born once again for me
Oh sweet name, I call you again
You're born once again for me
Just because I believe don't mean I don't think as well
Don't have to question everything
in heaven or hell



[CHORUS]
Lord, I kneel and offer you
my word on a wing
And I'm trying hard to fit
among your scheme of things



It's safer than a strange land
But I still care for myself
And I don't stand in my own light
Lord, lord, my prayer flies
like a word on a wing



My prayer flies
like a word on a wing
Does my prayer fit in
with your scheme of things?



In this age of grand illusion
You walked into my life
out of my dreams
Sweet name, you're born once again for me
Just as long as I can see, I'll never stop this vision flowing
I look twice and you're still flowing
Just as long as I can walk
I'll walk beside you, I'm alive in you
Sweet name, you're born once again for me
And I'm ready to shape the scheme of things



Ooh, ready to shape
the scheme of things [5 times]



[CHORUS]
