So much hurt and preservation
Like a tendril 'round my soul
So much painful information
No clear way on how to hold it

When everything in me it tightening
Curling in around this ache
I will lay my heart wide open
Like the surface of a lake
Wide open like a lake

Standing at this water's edge
Looking in at God's own heart
I've no idea where to begin
To swallow up the way things are

Everything in me drawing in
Closing in around this pain
I will lay my heart wide open
Like the surface of a lake
Wide open like a lake

Bring the wind and bring the thunder
Bring the rain till I am tried
When it's over, bring me stillness
Let my face reflect the sky
And all the grace and all the wonder
Of a peace that I can't fake
Wide open like a lake

Everything in me is tightening
Curling in around this ache
I am fighting to stay open
I am fighting to stay open
Open, open, oh, wide open
Open like a lake
