Song Lyrics

So you never knew love… ‘til you crossed the line of grace

And you never felt wanted… ‘til 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 colours and your family tree
And all your lessons in history


Please… please… please…
Get up off your knees now
Please… please… please…
Leave it 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 now
Please… please… please…
Leave it out

‘Cause love is big, it’s bigger than us
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…

And love is big, it’s bigger than us
But love is not what you’re thinking of

[Hallelujah / Oh yeah scat singing]

Oh I want to cry [or die?]
I want you to cry
I want you to feel
I wanted to heal [or hear?]
I put up with your call
I wish you would fall
Come on down now
Come on, come on

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… please… please…
Please…
Please…
Please…
