Waitin' for my ride
Jesus is floatin' outside
(shine on, sweet jesus, on me)
Watchin' the water rise
I'm gettin' lost in the tide
(cry all your teardrops on me)
While I'm still myself,
Your blankets covered me
Covered me while I was still asleep

Watchin' the planets shine
Reflecting yourself in the sky
(shine on, sweet jesus, on me)
Scraping these smiles of mine
Impossible one at a time
(cry all your teardrops on me)
While I'm still myself,
Your blankets covered me
Covered me while I was still asleep

Jesus is at my side,
Wondering what he will find
(shine on, sweet jesus, on me)
Watchin' the water rise
I'm gettin' lost in the tide
(cry all your teardrops on me)
While I'm still myself
Your blankets covered me
Covered me while I was still asleep
