lyrics

Only Love Can Save Me 

- Cara Luft

Oh darkness, why do you surround me after giving you everything?

I’ve asked the light to come and find me, tell the devil it’s time to leave

Mmmm, Only love can save me, Only love can save me...

I’m calling to the Holy of Holies, waiting for her face to shine

Be cradled in the arms of the mother and held tightly through the night

Mmmm, Only love can save me, Only love can save me...

Digging out from all the lies and sorrow, send that ladder down from on high

Gonna climb all the way to heaven, the gates are in my sight

Mmmm, Only love can save me, Only love can save me...

I’m shedding all the pain inside me, burning fires through the night

Rub the ashes all over my body, take a step into the light

Angels singing Glory Hallelujah, I can hear them call my name

Sent the devil packing south of the border, I won’t be in darkness again

Mmmm, Only love can save me, Only love can save me...
