Your eyes, they tie me down so hard.
I'll never learn to put up a guard.
So keep my love, my candle bright.
Learn me hard oh, learn me right.

This ain't no sham.
I am what I am.

Though I may speak, some tongue of old
Or even spit out some holy word.
I have no strength from which to speak
When you shoot me down and see I'm weak

We will run and scream.
You will dance with me.
They'll fulfill our dreams
And we'll be free
And we will be who we are
And they'll heal our scars.
Sadness will be far away.

So as we walked
Through fields of green,
It was the fairest sun I'd ever seen.
And I was broke,
I was on my knees.
You said yes as I said please.

This ain't no sham.
I am what I am.
I'll leave no time
For a cynic's mind.

We will run and scream.
You will dance with me.
Fulfill our dreams
And we'll be free
We will be who we are
And they'll heal our scars.
Sadness will be far away.

Do not let my fickle flesh go to waste
As it keeps my heart and soul in its place.
And I will love with urgency
But not with haste.

MUMFORD, MARCUS OLIVER JOHNSTONE / DWANE, EDWARD JAMES MILTON / LOVETT, BENJAMIN WALTER DAVID / MARSHALL, WINSTON AUBREY ALADAR
