I lied
I stole in the name of fear
But I won’t be silent here

I don’t want somewhere to run to
I don’t want somebody I can shake
Lord I want my dignity again
Before I walk on fire
You gotta look me in the face

I won’t flinch
And I won’t turn away

I’m sorry
I’m sorry for being scared
But I won’t drop you there
Oh darling
Let me show you I love you
Oh world
Let me show you I care

I don’t want somewhere to run to
I don’t want somebody I can shake
Lord I want my dignity again
Before I walk on fire
You gotta look me in the face

Give me back my touch
Give me back my feeling
Give me everything
I wanna be your witness
I want you to believe in me
