Love Call Me Home

When the waters are deep, friends carry me over
When I cry in my sleep love call me home.

CHORUS:
Time, ferry me down the river, friends carry me safely over
Life, tend me on my journey, love call me home.

When the waters are cold, friends carry me over
When I'm losing my hold, love call me home.

When I'm weary and cannot swim friends carry me over
Open your arms and take me in, love call me home.

Take the gift I bring, friends carry me over
Deep within me life is singing, love call me home.

Life offers a chance for friends to carry us over
Time can stop or dance forever, love call me home.
