I Will Never Leave You

by mckavanaugh

I am blinded and bloodied
The temple all around me has come down
She has searched me for my secret, secret secret
And left me chained and broken here
And left me chained and broken here

She said: I will never leave you
I am here to help you
I will never forsake you

I am sitting in the ashes
Of the house she has burned down
She is sitting there, smiling, holding matches
On the other side of town
On the other side of town

She said: I will never leave you
I am here to help you
I will never forsake you
I am here to help you
If you make your bed in hell Iíll be there too
I will never leave you

I am sitting in the darkness
Wishing that my motherís son had died
I was shivering because of cold and fear
When I heard a voice that cried
Then I heard a voice that cried

It said: I will never leave you
I am here to help you
I will never forsake you
I am here to help you
If you make your bed in hell Iíll be there too
I will never leave you

Iíve been consumed and constricted
Itís been four dark and helpless days
My way back to the living has been sealed
And my life is gone away
And my life is gone away

But He said: I will never leave you
I am here to help you
I will never forsake you
I am here to help you
If you make your bed in hell Iíll be there too
I will never leave you...
