Did you think I was leaving
My ticket was just one way
The angels I believed in
Were gonna carry me away
Did you think that I would simply
Give them my last breath
Well honey you've got me wrong
I'd never leave you for death
It's gonna take more than that to get rid of me
It's gonna take more than that to make me fade
They'll have to tie me up and drag me away
They'll have to shut my mouth and drag me away

There is no one I serve
I am not here to please
I will not be a hostage
To my own dis-ease

Oh Come on come on
Come on out and hold me
Out into the great sunlight
No power on earth can stop us
We'll both become one tonight

I have never been more sure of anything
I have never been more sure of what I am
They'll have to tie me up and drag me away
They'll have to shut my mouth and drag me away

There's no dark that can overcome a flame
There's no force that can drag me away
They could bring an army
Ten thousand men or more
Their mass weapons of destruction
Won't even up the score

Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on baby
They'll have to drag me away
Come on, come on, come on baby
They'll have to drag me away
They'll have to drag me away
They'll have to drag me away
They'll have to tie me up and drag me away
They'll have to shut my mouth and drag me away
There's no dark that can overcome a flame
There's no force that can drag me away

No force that can overcome a flame
There's no force that can drag me away
