UNKLE – On My Knees lyrics
(feat. Michael Kiwanuka)

[Chorus]
Whoa, on my knees
Whoa, I can't breathe
All that I ever prayed
That love would be where I stayed
Whoa, I can see
All that I believe
I know that I play the game
But I'll never be ashamed

[Verse 1]
I'm not trying to pass the blame
I'm just trying to protect my name
But you know I would die for you
What you dreamin', it can't be true
I can see how you tarnish me
How you gave me the third degree
I don't need to apologize
I could lie to you every night
When you stole from me everything
You just gave me a song to sing
You can leave me inside to die
What you mean is I never cry
There are things we can never see
I need God, would you pray for me?
We've been lost in the memory
All the darkness was meant to be

[Chorus]
Whoa, on my knees
Whoa, I can't breathe
All that I ever prayed
Love would be where I stayed
Whoa, I can see
All that I believe
I know that I play the game
But I'll never be ashamed

[Post-Chorus]
Whoa, on my knees
Oh, and I can't be
I can hear angels sing
I'm tired of the place I'm in
Whoa, holy ground
Give me the sweetest sound
I know where I'd rather be
The silence is heavenly

[Verse 2]
If I paint you a masterpiece
Would my pain and my hurt decrease?
If I'm able to make you cry
Would you love me and want me more?
I just want you to understand
That I'm only a broken man
And my heart it can only show
All the things we can never know
There's no need to apologize
We'll get back to the other side
I been walkin' on solid ground
Wait 'til you see what I have found
I've prayed for the stars above
I'm no longer the man you loved
I've become who I meant to be
When I needed you next to me

[Chorus]
Whoa, on my knees
Whoa, I can't breathe
All that I ever prayed
Whoa, I believe, I believe, whoa, whoa

[Bridge]
I believe, oh
I believe, yeah
Oh, I believe
That I'ma walk away
Oh, I believe
I'm walkin' now
Oh, I believe
Oh, oh, I believe
Oh, now, oh, I can see, yeah
Oh, I believe

[Chorus]
Whoa, on my knees
Whoa, I can't breathe
All that I ever prayed
That love would be where I stayed
Whoa, I can see
All that I believe
I can hear angels sing
Tired of the place I'm in
