cut   out    my        tongue there is         nothing    to           save

Love me, Oh Lord
He threw me away
He laughed at my sins
There is nothing to say

But I am broken too
And spoken for
Do not tempt me


(Verse)
Her skin is white
And I'm light as the sun
So holy light shines
On the things you have done

He had to               leave     though I       begged him         to stay

(While playing chorus again)
Left me alone
When I needed the light
Fell to my knees
And I wept for my life
If he had of stayed
You might understand
If he’d had of stayed
You never would have taken my hand

(Prechorus x2)
He wrote
I’m love
Please send for me
But I am broken too
And spoken for
Do not tempt me

(This is just the second part of the chorus)

He had to               leave     though I       begged him         to stay

(Chorus)
Begged him to stay
In my cold wooden grip
Begged him to stay
By the light of this ship
Me fighting him
Fighting light, fighting dawn
And the waves came and stole him
And took him to war

(Prechorus x2)
He wrote
I'm broke
Please send for me
But I am broken too
And spoken for
Do not tempt me

(Verse x2)
Forgive me Hera
I cannot stay
Cut out my tongue
There is nothing to say
Love me, Oh Lord
Her threw me away
He laughed at my sins
In his arms I must stay

(Prechorus x2)
We write
That's alright
I miss his smell
We speak
When spoken to
That suits us well
