Whenever I Say Your Name

Whenever I say your name,
whenever I call to mind your face
whatever bread's in my mouth,
whatever the sweetest wine that I taste
whenever your memory feeds my soul,
whatever got broken becomes whole
whenever I'm filled with doubts
that we will be together

Wherever I lay me down,
wherever I put my head to sleep
whenever I hurt and cry,
whenever I got to lie awake and weep
whenever I kneel to pray,
whenever I need to find a way
I'm calling out your name

Whenever those dark clouds hide the moon
Whenever this world has gotten so strange
I know that something's gonna change
Something's gonna change

Whenever I say your name, Whenever I say your name,
I'm already praying, I'm already praying
I'm already filled with a joy that I can't explain
Wherever I lay me down,
wherever I rest my weary head to sleep
whenever I hurt and cry,
whenever I got to lie awake and weep
whenever I'm on the floor
whatever it was that I believed before
whenever I say your name,
whenever I say it loud,
I'm already praying

Whenever this world has got me down,
whenever I shed a tear
whenever the TV makes me mad,
whenever I'm paralyzed with fear
whenever those dark clouds fill the sky,
whenever I lose the reason why
whenever I'm filled with doubts
that we will be together

Whenever the sun refuse to shine,
whenever the skies are pouring rain
whatever I lost I thought was mine,
whenever I close my eyes in pain
whenever I kneel to pray,
whenever I need to find a way
I'm calling out your name

Whenever this dark begins to fall
whenever I'm vulnerable and small
whenever I feel like I could die
whenever I'm holding back the tears that I cry

Whenever I say your name, whenever I say your name,
I'm already praying, I'm already praying
Whatever bread's in my mouth,
whatever the sweetest wine that I taste
wherever I lay me down,
wherever I rest my weary head to sleep
whenever I hurt and cry,
whenever I'm forced to lie awake and have to weep
whenever I'm on the floor
whatever it was that I believed before
Whenever I say your name,
whenever I say it loud,
I'm already praying

Whenever I say your name,
no matter how long it takes,
one day we'll be together

Whenever I say your name,
let there be no mistake
that day will last forever
