Jimi Yamagishi: Tunes & Lyrix

When I look to You

(Jimi Yamagishi)
It’s a simple fact of life that what goes up must all come down
Watch out or it might come down on you
A careless act or circumstance could jeopardize your life
Or maybe simply change your point of view
There’s three sides to every story, yours mine and the truth
Better run for cover if you’re wrong
Lies are just like earthquakes, damage by their magnitude
You’ve got to struggle to rebuild when they’re all done

That’s why I look to You, my Savior, above
When I lift my life, You rain down Your sweet love
When I look to you, my Savior, my Lord
You rebuild my life and make it better than before

Sittin’ with the evening news, & dinner on my plate
With this week’s celebrity on trial
Murder mass destruction, tragedy and war & hate
The anchorman reports it with a smile
They never have the time to talk about the peace
Or the promise written in God’s blood
Seems there’s always time to watch the media police
But never any time for love

Tylenol & chocolate, can’t relieve the pain
‘Specially when this crazy world is two steps past insane
You have promised peace of mind in my hour of need
And bring to light the truth so I can see

That’s when I look to You, my Savior, above
When I lift my life, You rain down Your sweet love
When I look to you, my Savior, my Lord
You rebuild my life and make it better than before
