Down On My Knees
(Mike Vallely / Joe Grushecky)

I was in a hotel room
I was so far away from home
It seemed like the walls were closing in on me
And my soul felt like it had turned to stone
There were two books upon the nightstand
And I didn’t know which one to read
And I wasn’t sure what I might find in them
Or if it’d be anything I need
But I sat there in that small room
As the night became the day
I read about Buddha and I read about Christ
And the words that they did say
And I saw myself before me
Like a ship lost at sea
And I guess I was content to just let it pass
When I heard your voice in me

Down on my knees
I was down on my knees
Down on my knees
I was down on my knees
Down on my knees
I was down on my knees
Down on my knees
I was down on my knees


I went walking into a strange city
In the darkest hours of the night
I went looking for a sign from you
I was hoping to see the light
When a man came from the shadows
And he asked me if I’d heard
The good news about Jesus Christ
And how he was the word
Then he asked me to say a prayer with him
So that Christ I would receive
I told him I had further to walk
Before I could believe
He said he saw me standing before him
Like a ship lost at sea
And I saw myself reflected in his eyes
When I felt your breath on me

Down on my knees
I was down on my knees
Down on my knees
I was down on my knees
Down on my knees
I was down on my knees
Down on my knees
I was down on my knees


I was sitting by the ocean
I was up against a dune
I was listening to the tide come in
I was looking up at the moon
And I never felt as alone in my life
As I did just sitting there
And my whole life flashed before me
And the pictures they seemed so bare
And I was overcome with desperation
And a hunger I couldn’t feed
Time stood still and it was seething
And I could feel my existence bleed
And I saw myself before me
I was like a ship lost at sea
And I was looking for a beacon
When I felt your light touch me

Down on my knees
I was down on my knees
Down on my knees
I was down on my knees
Down on my knees
I was down on my knees
Down on my knees
I was down on my knees

Down on my knees
I was down on my knees
I got down on my knees
I was down on my knees
Down on my knees
I was down on my knees
I got down on my knees
I was down on my knees
