Rapture (Capture Me)

reached the end
of the line
heard no welcome
saw no sign
head in my hands
cried like a baby
the cutting edge
had left its scars
long ago it seemed so simple
my faith shone
like the stars

rapture, capture me

oncoming light
as in a dream
life in slow motion
I slipped upstream
but it felt so incomplete
as my heart beat
a dull retreat

rapture, capture me

how in heaven will we know
when to let these hidden feelings show
lost in love's reflected glow
how in heaven

had a laugh poised on the brink
what choice was this to swim or sink
sometimes life's a bitter pill
but if you'll love me, I’ll find the will
I will

rapture, capture me
