lyrics

Peter, I’ve cast out into the deep but I’m floundering,
And my catch is so small, its hard believing
With each passing wave I drift further from you,
But this feeling of helplessness ain’t nothing new

This swell is rising into the unknown
I look around but I find myself alone,
How’d I ever get this far from home?

Though my spirit is strong my back is weak
I can’t carry the weight standing on my feet
I’ve always been a man of faith
But times have been real hard of late.

I’ve got a hunger and a deep abiding thirst,
If it’s a blessing then why do I feel cursed?
Even in my dreams I feel the hurt.

Peter, I got of that boat and I’m not going back,
I just, I hope your cool with that.
