Skin Deep - Poem by BRUCE MARTONE

TONIGHT I`M DOWN ON MY KNEES
PRAYING TO YOU MY SWEET LORD
TO END MY PAIN WHICH IS NOW SKIN DEEP.
NOW IT`S HURTING ME WAY TO MUCH
EVEN WITH THE SLIGHTEST TOUCH.
NOW THE MORPHINE WHICH ONCE DID BRING
NOW BRINGS NOTHING SO MY LORD I WILL ASK AGAIN
WON`T YOU TAKE ME IN MY SLEEP
ENDING THE PAIN WHICH I`M FORCE TO KEEP.
NOW MY LORD HOLD ME IN YOUR LOVING ARMS
KEEPING ME SAFE FROM THE DEVILS HARMS
CAUSE THE DEVIL LEFT ME NO CURE
LEFT ME NO CURE INSIGHT.
NOW MY LORD WITH NO CURE, THAN THERE IS NO HOPE
NO HOPE FOR ME TONIGHT.
NOW MY DAYS AND NIGHTS ARE NUMBER SO I HEAR
THERE NUMBER ONE BY ONE SOON THAT DAY WILL BE NEAR
SO MY LORD CAN YOU TAKE ME NOW
OH MY LORD CAN YOU TAKE ME SOMEHOW
AND CAN YOU OPEN THE PEARLY GATES
THAN I KNOW MY PAIN WILL END
THAT I ONCE WAS FORCE TO KEEP
WHICH ONCE WAS SKIN DEEP
