Lyrics
You make it sound easy
You say just hold your hand out don't you
You just hold your hand out don't you
That hope never leaves you

'Cause a light shines on that helps you to steer
Makes everything clear
(Well it might)
Well it might in your world

(But it doesn't)
But it doesn't in mine
(I've been stumbling)
I've been stumbling in the dark for years
And the light just made me blind

You say it lights every pathway
Shows me how to live life
For the rest of my days
For the rest of my days

(But I can't)
But I can't put my faith in
(Your words)
Your words and demands

(I believe)
I believe in God alright
It's folk like you I just can't stand

You don't have to try and scare me
To reinforce my faith sir
'cause I know that one day
I'll stand before my maker

(And it I'm found)
And if I'm found wanting
(When my case)
When my case is heard

(It'll be)
It'll be by the author
Not some interpreter of his words

You make it sound easy
You say just hold your hand out don't you
You just hold your hand out don't you
That hope never leaves you

'Cause a light shines on that helps you to steer
Makes everything clear
(Well it might)
Well it might in your world

(But it doesn't)
But it doesn't in mine
(I've been stumbling)
I've been stumbling in the dark for years

And the light just made me blind
Yeah the light just made me blind
