Featuring guitarist Mark Lettieri from Snarky Puppy

lyrics

Tell me what it’s like
To feel his hand upon your shoulder
Tell me how it feels
To know he wants to pull you closer
Tell me what it’s like
To know you are his precious treasure
Tell me how it feels
To be loved beyond all measure

So that your face can find rest
When you bury your tears in the strength of his chest
And your mind can know peace
‘Cause you know that you’re safe with him

Tell me what it’s like
To freely give your love to someone
Tell me how it feels
To bear your burden with a father

So that your face can find rest
When you bury your tears in the strength of his chest
And your mind can know peace
‘Cause you know that you’re safe with him

So that your face can find rest
When you bury your tears in the strength of his chest
And your mind can know peace
‘Cause you know that you’re safe with him
Safe in his love
Safe in his arms

Tell me what it’s like
Tell me what it feels like
To be loved
To be loved
Tell me
Tell me

So that your face can find rest
When you bury your tears in the strength of his chest
And your mind can know peace
When you know that you’re safe with him

So that your face can find rest
When you bury your tears in the strength of his chest
And your mind can know peace
‘Cause you know that you’re safe with him

Tell me what it’s like
