Words: Gerry Deveaux, Lenny Kravitz / Music: Gerry Deveaux, Terry Britten, Lenny Kravitz

I don't want to look around
And be turned to stone
All my darkest days awoken
I'm looking for a new way
I can't make it on my own
Lead me to a place wide open

I need a love that takes me higher
So high I'm never coming down

I don't want to know emptiness
Take me down to the water
Wanna be baptized in your love
Far away from the loneliness
Take my heart and wash away the fear
Let me be baptized in your love

Everybody's going down
They end up all alone
Far too many words unspoken
I know I gotta be there, I'm ready to be shown
The path of righteousness unbroken

I need a love that takes me higher
So high I'm never coming down

I don't want to know emptiness
Take me down to the water
Wanna be baptized in your love
Far away from the loneliness
Take my heart and wash away the fear
Let me be baptized in your love

I would be a fool to let you go
With you I'm reborn
I'm no longer torn
Yeah
I refuse to lose my heart and soul
I have to be strong

I don't want to know emptiness
Take me down to the water
Wanna be baptized in your love
Far away from the loneliness
Take my heart and wash away the fear
Let me be baptized in your love
