• Sanctus Real - Lead Me
    From the album Pieces of a Real Heart

    I look around and see my wonderful life
    Almost perfect from the outside
    In picture frames I see my beautiful wife
    Always smiling
    But on the inside, I can hear her saying...

    Lead me with strong hands
    Stand up when I can't
    Don't leave me hungry for love
    Chasing dreams, what about us?

    Show me you're willing to fight
    That I'm still the love of your life
    I know we call this our home
    But I still feel aloneā€

    I see their faces, look in their innocent eyes
    They're just children from the outside
    I'm working hard, I tell myself they'll be fine
    They're in independent
    But on the inside, I can hear them saying...

    Lead me with strong hands
    Stand up when I can't
    Don't leave me hungry for love
    Chasing dreams, but what about us?

    Show me you're willing to fight
    That I'm still the love of your life
    I know we call this our home
    But I still feel alone

    So Father, give me the strength
    To be everything I'm called to be
    Father, show me the way
    To lead them
    Won't You lead me?

    To lead them with strong hands
    To stand up when they can't
    Don't want to leave them hungry for love,
    Chasing things that I could give up

    I'll show them I'm willing to fight
    And give them the best of my life
    So we can call this our home
    Lead me, 'cause I can't do this alone

    Father, lead me, 'cause I can't do this alone
