Once I had it all
And I held it in my hands
But it slipped through my fingers
Like tiny grains of sand
Scattered by the wind
Never to return again

I've been down I've been broken
I've been beaten I've been torn
Can't sleep with the light off
Can't sleep with it on
Can't feel much of nothing
I've been too numb from the scorn

Almsgiver
I don't need no charity
I don't want your money
But honey, give your love to me

Momma she done told you
Papa told you too
Them boys with guitars
Can't take care of you
They only run and they're reckless
They live the way they want to.

But they've never felt freedom
Never wrapped it in their arms
Never been willing to risk everything
To follow what's in their hearts
But honey I'll tell you right now I'm willing to risk it all

Almsgiver
I don't need no charity
I don't want your money
But honey, give your love to me
Everything has a beginning
And everything too must end
But nothing's gone forever
It just changes from what it's been
And I've changed from what I've been
So honey let me back in

Almsgiver
If what will be will be
Then let me be for you
And honey you can be for me
