lyrics

You picked me up when I drowned in my own tears
You helped me stand when I was bent down on my knees.
Like an orphan in this world rootless I have swayed from day to night;
night to day.
But in the shelter of your arms rescued I have been so I don‘t have to
stray.

Cuz you helped me, helped me be a better man
Better than I‘ve ever could been

Back then I felt lost; didn‘t know elsewhere to go
Hungry for a cause to get up and become whole.
Standing at the end of this dead end street with a bag full of unwished
dreams
Freezin in the rise of the early morning sun try to figure out what is
meant to be.

Then you helped me, helped me to be a better man
Better than I‘ve ever could been

I never touched such purity throughout my life
Have been fooled by a false prophecy.
Now I‘ve witnessed how life could feel
Inside of me

Like an orphan in this world rootless I have swayed from day to night;
night to day.
But in the shelter of your arms rescued I have been so I don‘t have to
stray.

Cuz you helped me, helped me to be a better man
Better than I‘ve ever could been
