When There Are Gods

Memories get washed away like tears in rain
I can't help myself - I want to live again
Maker don't take her away from me
Maker don't take her away from me.
              
If you could see the many things that we have seen
If you could see just how close that we have been
And I know, yes I know, you think it's right
But I'm gonna fight against the dying of your light.
Oh my lord, if you will abide with me
Oh my lord, if you will abide with me.

Time it marches on, for some a lifetime is long
And I don't have much time and lord you know it's wrong
Predestination remains the same
Predestination remains the same.

If you could see the universe through my eyes
If you could see when love is born and when it dies
Oh my lord, you would cry with me
Oh my lord, you would cry with me.

They shot me in the head and they left me for dead
But I crawled away; I lived to fight another day
Everything was hell, but I lived to tell
And now you want to go and take it all away
I just can't take it anymore
I just can't take it anymore
If you could shine like a star and never fade
If you could look into my soul you never made
Oh my lord, you will die here with me
Oh my lord, you will die here with me
Oh my lord, you will die here with me.
