If I remember the night that we met
Tasted a wine that I'll never forget
Opened the doorway and saw through the light
Motions of movement and I felt delight

She spoke of freedom, "A way in", she said
"A wisdom that took me away from the bed"
Spoke of the glory that we had become
I felt forgiven in all I've become

Small, tasteless and flawed
Hoping to see, blinded like me
You tried to understand but you're just a man
Hoping to score just like me

Failure again, tried to pretend
Who you were then, who you are now
Hating the Lord, hating the Lord

Small, tasteless and flawed
Hoping to see, blinded like me
You tried to understand but you're just a man
Hoping to score just like me

Failure again, tried to pretend
Who you were then, who you are now
Hating the Lord, hating the Lord

Songwriters
ADRIAN FRANCIS UTLEY, BETH GIBBONS, GEOFFREY PAUL BARROW
