During my childhood full of strife I never thought I’d live to love my life From all the let downs that I had I swore I’d never turn out like my dad My first day of school I ran away If stubborn was assessed I’d get an A I was an angry little boy Set to self-destruct as he grows Who no one would have known Would get to sixteen and meet a girl I knew that I would marry her despite what her father said cause of his reservations I’d burn the past and change my life I had to have her as my wife Her father didn’t like my plan and I can’t say that I blame him at all I nearly died in 85’ my brother risked his life to save mine But when he died in 93’ it lead me to a place of darkness And no one would have guessed I’d get to sixteen and meet a girl I knew that I would marry her despite what her father said cause of his reservations I’d burn the past and change my life I had to have her as my wife Her father didn’t like my plan but I can’t say that I blame him at all I can’t say that I blame him at all You’re just so pretty when you’re mad But sometimes I overwind you just a tad Like when I shrunk your woollen top in the dryer with rest of your clothes I’m learning as I go I’ve known from sixteen about the girl who loved me by some miracle then chose to marry me I’m sure it’s no vacation I’ve proved to never let her down Her father slowly came around Initially he was wary Cause it sure looked liked my life would derail But I live to tell the tale I got to sixteen I got to sixteen I got to sixteen I got to sixteen Now you understand what I mean I never thought I’d live past sixteen

There’s a warm, safe place that your smile can take me to There’s a look in your eyes makes me feel brand new The way you wear that safety gear is beautiful But it’s destiny we fight today My head is a toaster I long for the day you call me friend I feel so below you I’m hanging from chains as you smash my head It’s the price of love Before you throw that punch will you even hesitate? Do you feel the pain my heart anticipates? If I had my way we would be something great But it’s destiny we fight today My head is a toaster I long for the day we’re more than friends I reach out to hold you Your smashing my face with a glove on a stick It’s the price of love It’s the price of love

I can’t take this anymore It’s like I’ve locked myself in a civil war I’m tired from drought between the rains I can’t get this poison out of my veins 몸이안 좋아요 Sometimes I find myself so down I tire from time to time but I come back around The only happiness I’ve found You have your faith in me and I won’t let you down I am looking at the view from the only window I ever knew Am I cursed or in a phase Where is the consistency my body craves? 몸이안 좋아요 Sometimes I find myself so down I tire from time to time but I come back around The only happiness I’ve found You have your faith in me and I won’t let you down Is there faith to believe it? Will you speak to receive it? Time is running out Here it comes can you see it? If you choose you can leave it Bury any doubt 몸이안 좋아요 Sometimes I find myself so down I tire from time to time but I come back around The only happiness I’ve found You have your faith in me and I won’t let I won’t let I won’t let you down

You depend on me anyone can see this When you’re brought to tears I will be beside you Call on me Call on me I’m gunna need time to believe this I’m gunna need time to forgive myself I’m gunna need time for healing It's gunna take time and that's time that I don’t have You can call on me if you ever need me I can promise you I would never leave you Call on me Call on me
 I’m gunna need time to believe this I’m gunna need time to forgive myself I’m gunna need time for healing It's gunna take time and that's time that I don’t have It's gunna take time and that's time that I don’t have

I woke to the rain and I found myself cold In a shadow of my former self Alone As I rose to my height with my intention made known In respect I paused for what’s ahead What will today hold? I will seek the truth cause I’m sick of the lies I will run to you cause my heart’s terrified Would you forgive everything that has past so I can live? My faith is in you My faith is in you I will seek the truth cause I’m sick of the lies I will run to you cause my heart’s terrified Would you forgive everything that has past so I can live? My faith is in you My faith is in you My faith is in you You alone My faith is in you You alone My faith is in you Hear me now and lead me to I’ve never been Cut these chains of misery Open up the floodgates It's time to sink or swim There is hope inside of me I will seek the truth cause I’m sick of the lies I will run to you cause my heart’s terrified Would you forgive everything that has past so I can live? My faith is in you You alone My faith is in you You alone
