06. The Surface

Even Heroes Need A Parachute
by This Beautiful Republic


Waves crashing over
Think Iím going under
Will the Savior keep me above the surface?

Someone in the distance
Please call me from this
Only you can keep me above the surface

Thinking that it all just might fade away
Terrified to fall cause I stepped out today
Sinking cause I know, I know I think too much

Save me, Jesus save me

My eyes are keeping
Focused only on you
Itís You that keeps me above the surface

The stronger the wind blows
The lesser my faith knows
And under the water
Iím colder Iím farther
I wish I could keep it together
I donít want to let you down

(TBR/Allen Salmon)

Behind the Song:
"Life can get really overwhelming. When this happens, it distracts us the same way the waves distracted Peter, and we begin to die. We start to depend on our own power instead of Godís, despite a true desire to please Him. Those are the times when we need Jesusí hand." - This Beautiful Republic
