Now I have nothing
So God give me strength
'Cause I'm weak anyway
And if I'm strong I might still break

And I don't have anything to share
That I won't throw away into the air

That song is sung out, this bell is rung out
He was the light that I'd bless
He took my last chance of happiness
So God give me strength, God give me strength

I can't hold on to him
God give me strength
When the phone doesn't ring
And I'm lost in imagining

Everything that kind of love is worth
As I tumble back down to the earth

That song is sung out, this bell is rung out
He was the light that I'd bless
He took my last chance of happiness
So God give me strength

God, if he'd grant me his indulgence and decline
I might as well wipe him from my memory
Fracture the spell as he becomes my enemy

And maybe I was washed out
Like a lip print on a shirt
See, I'm only human, I want him to hurt
I want him, I want him to hurt

Since I lost the power to pretend
That there could ever be a happy ending

That song is sung out, this bell is rung out
He was the light that I'd bless
He took my last chance of happiness
So God give me strength, God give me strength

Ooh, ooh
Wipe him from my memory
Ooh, I got to wipe him from my memory
Mmm, ooh
