Song Lyrics

Take these shoes
Click clacking down some dead end street
Take these shoes
And make them fit, yeah

Take this shirt
Polyester white trash made in nowhere
Take this shirt
And make it clean, clean

Take this soul
Stranded in some skin and bones
Take this soul
And make it sing, sing

Yahweh, Yahweh
Always pain before a child is born
Yahweh, Yahweh
Still I’m waiting for the dawn

Take this hurt
Teach them what to carry
Take these hands
Don’t make a fist, no

Take this mouth
So quick to criticize
Take this mouth,
Give it a kiss, yeah

Yahweh, Yahweh
Always pain before a child is born
Yahweh, Yahweh
Still I’m waiting for the dawn

_Oh…
Oh…_

Take this city
A city should be shining on a hill
Take this city
If it be your will

What no man can own
No man can take
Take this heart
Take this heart
Take this heart…
And let it break, yeah
