So you never knew love
Until you crossed the line of grace
And you never felt wanted
'Til you'd someone slap your face
And you never felt alive
'Til you'd almost wasted away

You had to win, you couldn't just pass
The smartest ass, at the top of the class
Your flying colors, your family tree
And all your lessons in history

Please, please, please
Get up off your knees now
Please, please
Please leave it out

So you never knew
How low you'd stoop to make that call
And you never knew
What was on the ground until they made you crawl
So you never knew
That the heaven you keep, you stole

Your catholic blues, your convent shoes
Your stick on tattoos now they're making the news
Your holy war, your northern star
Your sermon on the mount from the boot of your car

Please, please, please
Get up off your knees now
Please, please
Please leave it out

'Cause love is big
And love is tough
But love is not
What you're thinking of

September, streets capsizing
Spilling over and down the drains
Shards of glass, splinters like rain
But you could only feel your own pain

October, talk getting nowhere
November, December
Remember
Are we just starting again?

Please, please, please
Get up off your knees now
Please

'Cause love is big
Is bigger than us
But love is not
What you're thinking of

It's what lovers deal
It's what lovers steal
You know I've found it hard to receive
'Cause you my love, I could never believe
