Just Say The Word

Wish I could, simply have looked away
It would have been so much, easier that way
As it was, I stayed where you were found
Wished my soul away, on consecrated ground

Faith, you can forget it
Hope, will have to do, for me

But if you asked of me what nobody,
Should ask of me, then I’d say yes,
I’d pull the walls down, let the roof fall
Somehow I would find the strength
For you, just say the word

Simple words, small talk, the time of day
I knew that soon it would take you away,
To the house, standing by the shore
And from there, to where you were before

Faith, you can forget it
Hope, will have to do, for me

But if you asked of me what nobody,
Should ask of me, then I’d say yes,
I’d pull the walls down, let the roof fall
Somehow I would find the strength

So, ask of me what nobody
Should ask of me, then I’ll say yes,
I’ll pull the walls down, let the roof fall
A broken shell I’ll give to you
Just say the word
