Awake At Last – Precious lyrics

She never grinded on anyone the way she grinded on me
She told me she'd never seen anyone quite like me

Oh yeah she was a diamond and I was the rough
She told me I'd be the one who to set her free

And she had those eyes they can see through all the good in someones life
But she cries at night she says baby give me one last try
I said oh oh oh she was precious

And she was so unlike the rest
She could tear apart your mind
She wore her heart on her wrist impossible to resist she wove a tapestry of lies
And when I'd try to walk out she would chase right after me
She'd take me by the hand she said baby please don't go

And she had those eyes they can see through all the good in someones life
And a wise man said my son forgiveness in divine

And there she laid alone
She's so beautiful
But her veins were running cold
I had to leave my precious girl

But keep your face off the ground don't give up you were all I had
And when the city finally sleeps I'll find you there
And if you cry in the night its alright don't you be scared
She's such a tragic story and it's a burden I can't bear

And she had those eyes but she told those lies

I broke my oath to you I sold my soul for you
But baby I can't be the one to come and save your life again

Cause I sold my soul for you
She was precious
