Privilege Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I see it all before me
The days of love and torment
The nights of rock and roll
I see it all before me

Sometimes my spirit's empty
Don't have the will to go on
I wish someone would send me
Energy

Give me something
Give me something to give
Oh God, give me something
A reason to live

My body is aching
Don't want sympathy
Come on, come and love me
Come on, set me free
Set me free

The Lord is my shepherd
I shall not want
He maketh me to lie down
In green pastures

He leadeth me beside the still waters
He restoreth my soul
He leadeth me through the path
Of righteousness for His name's sake

Yeah, though I walk through the valley
Of the shadow of death
I will fear no evil for Thou art with me

Hey Lord, I'm waitin' for you
Oh God, I'm waitin' for you
Waitin' to open Your ninety-eight wounds
And be Thee, be Thee
Lead me, oh, lead me

Leave me something
Leave me something to live
Oh, God, give me something
A reason to live

I don't want no handout
No, not sympathy
Come on, come and love me
Come on, set me free
Set me free

Come on, set me free
Set me free
Come on, set me free
Set me free

Come on, set me free
Set me free

Oh, I'm so young, so goddamn young
(Set me free)
Oh, I'm so young, so goddamn young
(Set me free)
Oh, I'm so young, so goddamn
Set me free

In the presence of my enemies
Thou anointest my head with oil
My cup runneth over
Surely, goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life
And I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever

Damn, goddamn, goddamn, goddamn
Here I am
