I swear that I’ve been here before on this same couch with this
same disregard
Baby, this is where darkness lives and it’ll catch you off your guard
I hope you can believe there’s more to me than what you see
And that we have no business here even though you don’t agree

Until we fall back onto the Great I Am
We’ll use up all we got, our love we will exhaust
Until we learn to trust in the God of Abraham
And give up what we got, all will be lost

Something here is wrong, I can hear it in your voice
But crying at home by yourself is your method of choice
Over the phone, just a couple miles away, is right where I belong
Do you think that you were happier before I came along?

Until we fall back onto the Great I Am
We’ll use up all we got, our love we will exhaust
Until we learn to trust in the God of Abraham
And give up what we got, all will be lost

I want to love you well I want to do this right
During the day it’s so easy but it gets hard at night
I hope you can believe that I can’t go on at this rate
Something’s gotta change, I just hope it’s not too late

Until we fall back onto the Great I Am
We’ll burn up all we got, our love we will exhaust
Until we learn to trust in the God of Abraham
And give up what we got, all will be lost


What’cha gonna do with your love
What’cha gonna let go of
It’s time to make your choice right now

What’cha gonna do about this
You know it’s never just one kiss
Don’t lie to me, don’t lie to yourself

I feel like everything is wrong
