L A Z A R U S H E A R T Lyrics – Joshua Leventhal

There’s a Man who’s been hanging round tombs
And the whole town don’t know what to think
See, He talks to the dead, tells them to rise
And they rise just like they were asleep

And they ain’t just some phantoms or wraiths
They’ve got skin, they’ve got bones, they’ve got names
They speak of this Man, say You’ve gotta meet Him
Just His shadow heals sick and the lame

He’s doing just what He said
He’s raising the dead

And He’s come for me
To wake me from my sleep
He shouts out my name
And He scatters my dark
And He raises this Lazarus heart

There’s a flower that’s blooming in me
It’s never grown here before
Sisters joyfully weep, they recline at Your feet
Spill their perfume all over the floor

But the honeymoon’s over for me
Broke my vows almost instantly
If this is new life, how come I still strive
Maybe death isn’t finished with me

But You’re doing just what You said
You’re raising the dead

And You’ve come for me
To wake me from my sleep
You shout out my name
And You scatter my dark
And You raise up this Lazarus heart

Oh-oh-oh this is gonna hurt
Oh-oh-oh but it has to work
And though I can’t see any daylight in me
Still you’re ripping me out from the dirt

So please heal me
My death just runs so deep
Yet You reach to my depths
And You scatter my dark
And You raise up this Lazarus heart
