In my closet
A spot is worn from hours and hours upon my knees
I step inside
The quiet's like a doorway to a world of peace
One thing I don't worry 'bout
I can't wear my welcome out
(Chorus:)
I keep knock, knock,
Knockin' on heaven's door
I keep talk, talk,
Talkin' 'cause you answer Lord
Won't be stop, stop,
Stoppin' so be listening for me
I'm knock, knock,
Knockin' on heaven's door
I'm not a poet
No, it's not like me to speak in flowery words
Not a prophet
Not at least in these parts
That would be unheard of
But my heart speaks loud and clear
And since my prayers are answered here
(Chorus)
Whisper what you're feeling
Shout it at the ceiling
Nothing's gonna fall on deaf ears
Ask Him for His mercy
Pray away your worries
What do you want heaven to hear
Whisper what you're feeling
Shout it at the ceiling
Nothing's gonna fall on deaf ears
Bless the world around you
Pray His peace surrounds you
What do you want heaven to hear
Whisper what you're feeling
Shout it at the ceiling
Nothing's gonna fall on deaf ears
Thank Him for His favor
Sing and praise the Savior
That's what I want heaven to hear
