Kathy Mattea — Till I Turn To You lyrics

Time after time, I've turned away from you
When all I had to do was surrender to your love
You've seen me stumble, you've watched me fall
And though I heard you call, I just wasn't strong enough
But there's an emptiness inside without you in my life
Lord, I hope you hear my prayer tonight

Won't you blind my eyes when all I see is temptation
Break my stride when I'm runnin' from the truth
An' tie my hands when I reach out with desire
Go on an' do what you must do
Whatever you must put me through, till I turn to you, yeah
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/kathy-mattea-till-i-turn-to-you-lyrics.html ]
I know others fall down on their knees for mercy
But you may have to hurt me before I see the light
'Cause I've gone as far as I can go all by myself
You know I need your help if I'm gonna get it right
Tired of strugglin' every day, Lord I wanna know the way
So, now the only prayer I wanna pray

Is just blind my eyes when all I see is temptation
Break my stride when I'm runnin' from the truth
An' tie my hands when I reach out with desire
Go on an' do what you must do
Whatever you must put me through, till I turn to you, yeah

Blind my eyes, break my stride
Let every want be denied, whatever you must do
An' tie my hands, ignore my demands
Build a wall that stands so high, I can't get through
Till I turn to you, till I turn to you, oh yeah, till I turn to you, till I turn to you
