Jill Phillips – Live By The Sword lyrics

I don’t see why I don’t see what bothers me
And I don’t know why I don’t know what won’t let me go
I should have listened to myself when I had it down
This dose of my own medicine is too big to swallow now

This is the time when I find what’s inside of me
This is the time when I decide what I believe

If I wanna be real in this world
Then I have to realize
If I am gonna live by the sword
Then I'm gonna have to die by the sword

It’s easy to be calm when there’s no crashing tide
It’s easy to be quiet when it’s loud outside
It’s easy to be humble when you’re glorified
But now I’m out here on my own and screaming from inside

This is the time when I find what’s inside of me
This is the time when I decide what I believe

If I wanna be real in this world
Then I have to realize
If I am gonna live by the sword
Then I'm gonna have to die by the sword

But you stripped me down to basics
You left my heart exposed
There is no pride in times like this

No one said it was easy
And no one said it was fair
But no one is happy when it is

I need your loving arms to carry me
When I look in the mirror and I don’t like what I see
I know you know what I desire to do
So help me follow even when it’s not easy to

If I wanna be real in this world
Then I have to realize
If I am gonna live by the sword
Then I'm gonna have to die

If I wanna be real in this world
Then I have to realize
If I am gonna live by the sword
Then I'm gonna have to die

I'm gonna have to die
I'm gonna die by the sword
