lyrics

They can pry me off all they want to
The demons' point of view
I'm standing like a boxer glued to your eyes

You can write me off if you want to
But not before our love grew
With my arm outstretched, my hand across your back

And set you free
From the vultures that attack you constantly
Setting forth their own agendas for their needs
Oh I don't want to be
Pulling you away from me
I've tried too hard just not to let you go
God, I love you so

You can take your time if you need to
Stand tall like a statue
A tower of eternal love and peace and joy

We can sit and pray with our arms crossed
Our hands interlocked
And ask God to save us both from misery

And set you free
From the vultures that attack you constantly
Setting forth their own agendas for their needs
Oh I don't want to be
Pulling you away from me
I've tried too hard just not to let you go
God, I love you so
