You make it sound easy
You say you just hold your hand out, don't you?
You just hold your hand out, don't you?
That hope never leaves you
'Cos a light shines on that helps you to steer
Makes everything clear

(Well, it might)
Well, it might in your world
(But it doesn't)
But it doesn't in mine
(I've been stumbling)
I've been stumbling in the dark for years
And the light just made me blind

You say, it lights every pathway
Shows me how to live life
For the rest of my days
For the rest of my days

(But I can't)
But I can't put my faith in
(Your words)
Your words and demands
(I believe)
I believe in God alright
It's folk like you, I just can't stand

You don't have to try and scare me
To reinforce my faith, sir
'Cos I know that one day
I'll stand before my maker

(And if I'm found)
And if I'm found wanting
(When my case)
When my case is heard
(It'll be)
It'll be by the author
Not some interpreter of his words

You make it sound easy
You say just hold your hand out, don't you?
You just hold your hand out, don't you?
That hope never leaves you
'Cos a light shines on that helps you to steer
Makes everything clear

(Well, it might)
Well, it might in your world
(But it doesn't)
But it doesn't in mine
(I've been stumbling)
I've been stumbling in the dark for years
And the light just made me blind
Oh, the light just made me blind
Yeah, the light just made me blind
