You hold your truth so purely
Swerve not through the minds of men
The lie, it is dead
And this cup of yours tastes holy
But you know I was not that man
It's not my land

And my heart
Was colder when you'd gone
I lost my head
But found the one that I loved

It's not what I do that makes me
In my weakness I grew strong
Held my tongue
And I've learned from errors made early
A brush with the devil can clear your mind
And strengthen your spine

But fingers tap into what you were once
And I'm worried that I blew my only chance

Whispers in the dark
Steal a kiss and you'll break a heart
Pick up your clothes and curl your toes
Learn your lesson, lead me home
Spare my sins for the ark
I was to slow to depart
I'm a cad but I'm not aflawed
I set out to serve the Lord.

But my heart
Was colder when you'd gone
I lost my head
But found the one that I loved
Under the sun
Under the sun

And fingers tap into what you were once
And I'm worried that I blew my only chance
Fingers tap into what you were once
And I'm worried that I blew my only chance

But my heart
Was colder when you'd gone
And lost my head
But still, while we are young
While we are young
While we are young
While we are young
