A Message To Keep Me Afloat © Jeff Ashbaker

Nothing I say is worth saying
And all that I do is for nil
So my spirit is constantly craving
While my heart's at a sudden stand still

So I was taking some time to remember
Times that were better than these
Well it was breaking my heart to surrender my part
So I got down on my knees

I said "Hey flood me with an image that frees me
Throw me a line from your boat
For I know that your love guarantees me
A message to keep me afloat
Tell me of things I have banished from thought
Show me an error of ways
Bring me an answer to have or have not
And I'll share with you all of my days

So I was hoping today I'll consider
Some dreams that I had, have come true
And illusions that once seemed so bitter
Have all been sweetened by you

Now the dark skies are brightened by rainbows
So I'm beginning to see from your light
That the rain it must flow, so the flowers can grow
And our love, it will shine through the night

--Repeat Chorus--

Yeah, bring me an answer to have or have not
And I'll share with you all of my days
