As I lay me down
Heaven hear me now
Im lost without a cause
After giving it my all

Winter storms have come
And darkened my sun
After all that I've been through
Who on earth can I turn to

I look to you
I look to you

After all my strength is gone
In you I can be strong

I look to you
I look to you

Yeah

And when melodies are gone
In you I hear a song

I look to you

After losing my breath
There's no more fighting left
Sinking to rise no more
Searching for that open door

And every road that I've taken
Lead to my regret
And I don't know if Im gonna make it
Nothing to do but lift my head

I look to you
I look to you

Yeah

And when all my strength is gone
In you I can be strong

I look to you
I look to you

Oh yeah

And when melodies are gone
In you I hear a song

I look to you


(my levee's have broken, my walls have come)

Coming down on me

(crumbling down on me)

All the rain is falling

(the rain is falling, defeat is calling)

Set me free

(i need you to set me free)

Take me far away from the battle
I need you
Shine on me

I look to you
I look to you

After all my strength has gone
in you I can be strong

I look to you
I look to you

and when melodies are gone
In you I hear a song

I look to you

yeah

I look to you
oooooooh
I look to you

    Looking up to god especially in those days that i feel like giving up after trying many times by myself but failled. Cos with him nothing is impossible.where man fails he prevails and where man lies he is faithful and always does what he says he will do.

    To me this song is the pillar of my strength, when all around me goes wrong I know I more than welcome to look up to God for strength as I'm still given a chance to fight back as am not layed down yet nor all the doors of life been close. I love this song it revives me, may God bless everyone who worked on it till the day I got it and touched my life and may God forgive Whitney for all her faults as she changed our lives with her angelic voice, may her soul reast in peace in the name of Jesus amen.

    I lost my Mother about 2 years ago, and lately I have been going through a very hard time. Thank God that she taught me about God and his son Jesus, but I really felt like I had no one on Earth that I could trust since she was gone. Last night I dreamth that I was sionging this song to my Mother, and I sang it to her with such force, admiration and love. My Mother listened with intensity, and when I had finished singing to her she ran to me and held me in her arms with such intense that I woke up in tears. After I had wiped the tears from my eyes; I felt a new sense of strength, and love. I know now that my Mother is looking over me, and is with me in spirit. Thank you R Kelly for creating a medium in which my Mother was able to communicate with me

    i think this song is about when you have hard times and you just dont know what to do and you have just given up on hope You look to him because you know that he has the power to make things better Times like that are really hard sometimes people cant eat cant sleep or anything. Sometimes there just too depressed to talk about it and it's not a really good feeling. But thats why R Kelly wrote this song
