There’s a song in the distance there’s a light in my eye there’s a wave of resistance as the chances me by and there’s a need for forgiveness there I need for letting go a desire to be right oh I need saving for my soul.
Chorus: And you could save me, save me from myself And would you save me what good is any wealth if you don’t save me. I tried to resist you I have often turned away but your freedom is present in every word you say, and I am tired of living without hope to face it all I may smile but you know I read the writing on the wall.
Song in the distance for some reason when I sing this particular song often,even a crowded Cafe become quiet and attentive.
