A SIMPLE MAN HEARD A LOVING VOICE
HERE’S A CHANCE TO MAKE THINGS BRIGHTER
BUT THIS JUDGING MAN, HE MADE A CHOICE
TO FALL ASLEEP AND HIDE THERE

BUT THE TORRENTS CAME, AS THEY OFTEN DO
WHEN THE WINDS OF CHANGE COME BLOWING THROUGH
WAKE UP … STEP UP … LOVE IS CALLING YOU

CHORUS
DON’T RUN FROM LOVE … IT’S ONLY THERE TO REMIND YOU
OF WHAT YOU HOLD DEEP INSIDE YOU … OOOOHHHHH
IT’S ONLY LOVE CAN FIND YOU IN ANY DARKNESS
AND SHINE A LIGHT WHERE YOUR HEART IS … OOOOHHHHH
LOVE IS CALLING YOU

A FRIGHTENED MAN INSIDE THE STORM
HOLDING ONLY HIS PRAYER
SWALLOWED WHOLE, THIS HUNGRY SOUL
DISCOVERED WISDOM THERE

IN COLD AND SHADOWED SOLITUDE
HE CAUGHT A BREATH OF GRATITUDE
WAKE UP … STEP UP … LOVE IS CALLING YOU

CHORUS
DON’T RUN FROM LOVE … IT’S ONLY THERE TO REMIND YOU
OF WHAT YOU HOLD DEEP INSIDE YOU … OOOOHHHHH
IT’S ONLY LOVE CAN FIND YOU IN ANY DARKNESS
AND SHINE A LIGHT WHERE YOUR HEART IS … OOOOHHHHH
LOVE IS CALLING YOU

BRIDGE
THE DEPTH OF YOUR LOVE WILL ASTOUND YOU
BUT ONLY BY SETTING IT FREE
THEN BACK, LIKE THE TIDE, IT SURROUNDS YOU
THE LOVE IS IN LETTING IT BE

CHORUS
DON’T RUN FROM LOVE … IT’S ONLY THERE TO REMIND YOU
OF WHAT YOU HOLD DEEP INSIDE YOU … OOOOHHHHH
IT’S ONLY LOVE CAN FIND YOU IN ANY DARKNESS
AND SHINE A LIGHT WHERE YOUR HEART IS … OOOOHHHHH
LOVE IS CALLING YOU
LOVE IS CALLING YOU
LOVE IS CALLING YOU
