Alanis Morissette – I Remain lyrics

How crass you stand before me
With no blood to fuel your fame
How dare you weild such flippancy without requisite shame
Your very existence becomes my sacred mission's bane
You bow to kiss my hand and I ignore ignited flame

I moved to meet you
Untouched I do remain

To some it seems foreign
Why I would steely forge ahead
This land entrusted to me knows not of hallowed secrets
I'll keep it to myself
My own advicement in my head
Your charm can not distract me
From the path I'm born to tread

How I'm thrilled to know you
Affected, I remain(ed?)
How I've learned to like you
Undeterred I do remain

Less daunting as team?
You unlikely king by my side
And me, so much better for trusting you
My hand over your heart
While you keep hindrances at bay
Color me surprised by how our union saves the day

How I've grown to need you
As my soul I just faiths
How I love to know you
And how I remain
I remain
I remain
I remain
I remain
I remain
