There's so much craziness, surrounding me
There's so much going on, it gets hard to breathe
When all my faith has gone, you bring it back to me
You make it real for me

When I'm not sure of, my priorities
When I've lost site of, where I'm meant to be
Like holy water, washing over me
You make it real for me

And I'm running to you baby
You are the only one who saved me
That's why I've been missing you lately
'Cause you make it real for me

When my head is strong, but my heart is weak
I'm full of arrogance, and uncertainty
But I can find the words, you teach my heart to speak
You make it real for m
Everybody's talking in words I don't understand
You got to be the only one
Who knows just who I am
You're shining in the distance
I hope I can make it through
'Cause the only place
That I want to be
Is right back home with you

I guess there's so much more I have to learn
But if you're here with me
I know which way to turn
You always give me somewhere,
Somewhere I can learn
You make it real for me

(it's there, in th house, on the poetry shelf; I'm here, in The Tower, on the eighth floor, also on the shelf; but how I hate to be parted from my books)
