I tried and tried to walk away
To be the bigger man and leave
You made it hard for me, for me

It's been a long lonely road
I didn't know which way to go
You made my blood run cold
And filled me up with sorrow

There's nowhere for me to go
I'm a long way away from home
I won't go without a fight
You'll never take me alive

You'll never take me alive
Oh no, you won't ever take me alive
Oh no, you won't take me alive
Oh no, you won't ever take me alive
Oh no, you won't

I tried and tried to shed your skin
But you've controlled me from within
Your love has been a sin
I won't forget tomorrow

There's no where for me to go
I'm a long way away from home
I won't go without a fight
You'll never take me alive

You'll never take me alive
Oh no, you won't ever take me alive
Oh no, you won't take me alive
Oh no, you won't ever take me alive
Oh no, you won't

In the fire inside the circle lonely treat today
In the fire inside the circle lonely treat today

You'll never take me alive
No, no, you won't ever take me alive
No, no, you won't take me alive
No, no, you won't ever take me alive
No, no, you won't

Baby, I used to watch your flowers grow
Now it's raining and all your petals turn to stone
