Song Lyrics

Please stop fighting
Please let’s talk… please

So you never knew love… until you crossed the line
of grace
And you never felt wanted… until you’d someone slap
your face
And you never felt alive… until you’d almost wasted
away


You had to win, you couldn’t just pass
The smartest ass, at the top of the class
Your flying colors, your family tree
And all your lessons in history


Please… please… please…
Get up off your knees
Please… please… please…
Leave me out


So you never knew… how low you’d stoop to make that
call
And you never knew… what was on the ground until they
made you crawl
So you never knew… that the heaven you keep you stole


Your Catholic blues, your convent shoes
Your stick-on tattoos, now they’re making the news
Your holy war, your northern star
Your sermon on the mount from the boot of your car


Please… please… please…
Get up off your knees
Please… please… please…
Leave me out


‘Cause love is big and love is tough
But love is not what you’re thinking of


September, streets capsizing
Spilling over and down the drain
Shards of glass, splinters like rain
But you could only feel your own pain

October, talk getting nowhere
November, December, remember
Are we just starting again?


Please… please… please…
Get up off your knees now
Please…

‘Cause love is big
It’s bigger than us
But love is not
What you’re thinking of
What you’re thinking of


[Hallelujah / Oh yeah scat singing]


It’s what lovers deal
It’s what lovers steal
You know I’ve found it hard to receive
‘Cause you my love… I could never believe


Please… please… please…
Get up off your knees now
Please…
