Hallelujah 2

I stand with nothing but the rags of regret
that caress the skin of a beggar standing at your gate
and the sound of midnight
is the only lullaby
my lips still know
it’s a desperate prayer under the unforgiving sky



does the sound of surrender open up the door

have you been standing there all along

waiting for me to leave the ruins

of the life I’ve lived

will you hear the case of a sinner ready to turn

will you answer the call from a broken man



what was broken

can be made new
