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
