Caedmon's Call – Love Alone lyrics
No one would love me
If they knew all the things I hide
My words fall to the floor
As tears drip through the telephone line

And the hands I've seen raised to the sky
Not waving but drowning all this time
I'll try to build the ark that they need
To float to you upon the crystal sea

Give me your hand to hold
'Cause I can't stand to love alone
And love alone is not enough to hold us up
We've got to touch your robe
So swing your robe down low
Swing your robe down low

The prince of despair's been beaten
But the loser still fights
Death's on a long leash
Stealing my friends to the night

And everyone cries for the innocent
You say to love the guilty, too
And I'm surrounded by suffering and sickness
So I'm working tearing back the roof

And the pain of the world is a burden and it's my cross to bear
And I stumble under all the weight
I know you're Simon standing there
And I know you're standing there

    I think this is about the problem of sin and brokenness in human hearts - that god couldn't just love us, but that he had to come in the person of jesus to heal and transform us to - hence like the sick woman in the gospels we need to 'touch jesus' robe', or have the faith to 'tear back the roof' like the paralytic's friends in order to find healing from our sin.
