Derek Webb – A Love That's Stronger Than Our Fear lyrics

What would you do
If someone put a gun to your head
And ask you to tell them a lie
What would you say
If you were pushed that way
To betray yourself to keep yourself alive
Is life worth so much

There's got to be a love that's stronger than our fear
Of everything being out of control
Everything being out of control

What would you do

If someone would tell you the truth
But only if you torture them half to death
Tell me since when do the means justify the ends
And you build the kingdom using the devil's tools
Can time be so short


There is a day that's been inaugurated but has not yet
That we can proclaim by showing that there's a better way
