Somewhere there's a stolen halo
I used to watch her wear it well
Everything would shine wherever she would go
But lookin' at her now you'd never tell

Someone ran away with her innocence
A memory she can't get out of her head
I can only imagine what she's feelin'
When she's prayin'
Kneelin' at the edge of her bed

And she says take me away
And take me farther
Surround me now
And hold, hold, hold me like holy water
Holy water

She wants someone to call her angel
Someone to put the light back in her eyes
She's lookin' through the faces

And unfamiliar places
She needs someone to hear her when she cries

And she says take me away
And take me farther
Surround me now
And hold, hold, hold me like holy water
Holy water

She just needs a little help
To wash away the pain she's felt
She wants to feel the healin' hands
Of someone who understands

And she says take me away
Then take me farther
Surround me now
And hold, hold, hold me
And she says take me away
And take me farther
Surround me now
And hold, hold, hold me like holy water
Holy water

    I agree with musicluver on this one. Although I believe in Jesus, I think it's talking about a woman who's been raped and wants someone to talk to. Possibly Jesus or another person who is not going to judge her, just embrace her and see her through this time of depression.

    I think your are soo far from the truth... It never onced talked about an abusive relationship in this song...This Song is about going down lifes wrong paths while making wrong decisions...She is now looking for redemption from Jesus before its too late...

    The song is talking about abusive relationships between men and woman... It sayin that someone either raped her ( "Someone ran away with her innocence") or was killing her soul by hurting her in sum way
