Emery You Wanted It Lyrics

Last updated: 05/05/2011 11:00:00 AM

Run you coward, you run
These words crippled my confidence
The hymn I can't escape from
This is over and done with
This race has made me more than weary, I am dead

I created everything here that I wanted to see
So was that your plan, to leave me out?
We were all reciting messages and pushing repeat
But this world you made does it let you breath

Does it let you feel anything but yourself?
When was the last time
Does it let you breathe?
Does it let you feel anything but yourself?
When was the last time you saw anyone else?

Whispers and echoes of love fading
The plans you made, you wanted it
The bitter taste, you wanted it
What god became you wanted it
But the one thing you need you'll never get

There was more of you and less of me
You blamed it on the chemistry
Can you close your eyes when you rest your head?
It didn't have to be this way but you wanted it

They were just calendar days
I'm sure it's all written down
But if you'll let me just ask
Is this how you bring the crowd to their feet?
You hurt because it wasn't about you
About me?
You're always scared the floor is gonna give way
I call the shots
We could end this, we could end this
Don't you ever tell me what I've got

Whispers and echoes of love fading
The plans you made, you wanted it
The bitter taste, you wanted it
What god became you wanted it
But the one thing you need you'll never get

There was more of you and less of me
You blamed it on the chemistry
Can you close your eyes when you rest your head?
It didn't have to be this way but you wanted it
I wanted, I wanted, I wanted, I wanted this

You made it such a lonely world (Blessed assurance)
Such a very lonely world
You bent the answers into questions (Jesus is mine)
You let the voice go unheard
And you couldn't trust yourself (O, what a foretaste)
Cause what if everything you felt
Meant this was not yours alone (of glory divine!)

Every single word, every single little word that was said (Heir of salvation)
And all the simple fears (purchase of God)
And all the nights that you cried in your bed
Hoping I was there but you told yourself (born of His Spirit)
You're old and alone
But you were never the widow you left on your own (washed in His blood)

I was washed in the blood
I was born of a spirit but I drowned
When you found me out there
Rejoice, Rejoice the old King is dead
Long live the new king
I am the new king

Whispers and echoes of love fading
The plans you made, you wanted it
The bitter taste, you wanted it
What god became you wanted it
But the one thing you need you'll never get

There was more of you and less of me
You blamed it on the chemistry
Can you close your eyes when you rest your head?
It didn't have to be this way but you wanted it
