Jesus – Gethsemane (I Only Want To Say) lyrics

I only want to say, if there is a way
Take this cup away from me
For I don't want to taste its poison

Feel it burn me, I have changed
I'm not as sure, as when we started
Then, I was inspired, now, I'm sad and tired
Listen, surely I've exceeded expectations
Tried for three years, seems like thirty
Could you ask as much from any other man?

But if I die, see the saga
Through and do the things you ask of me
Let them hate me, hit me, hurt me, nail me to their tree

I'd want to know, I'd want to know, my God
I'd want to know, I'd want to know, my God
Want to see, I'd want to see, my God
Want to see, I'd want to see, my God, why I should die?

Would I be more noticed than I ever was before?
Would the things I've said and done matter any more?

I'd have to know, I'd have to know, my Lord
Have to know, I'd have to know, my Lord
Have to see, I'd have to see, my Lord
Have to see, I'd have to see, my Lord

If I die what will be my reward?
If I die what will be my reward?
Have to know, I'd have to know, my Lord
I'd have to know, I'd have to know, my Lord
Why should I die? Oh, why should I die?

Can you show me now that I would not be killed in vain?
Show me just a little of your omnipresent brain
Show me there's a reason for you're wanting me to die
You're far to keen and where and how but not so hot on why

Alright, I'll die, just watch me die, see how I die
Then I was inspired, now, I'm sad and tired
After all, I've tried for three years, seems like ninety
Why then am I scared to finish what I started?
What you started, I didn't start it

God, Thy will is hard but you hold every card
I will drink your cup of poison
Nail me to your cross and break me
Bleed me, beat me, kill me
Take me, now, before I change my mind
