lifeblood: songs: lyrics: stand and deliver


baby's got
a lot of tears
enough to cry
a thousand years
enough to cry
a thousand seas
enough to break
a boy like me
i want to stand
and deliver
and be the one
that makes it better

all i've got's
this little heart
with growing pangs
and leaky parts
all i've got's
this little cup
i pour it out
she fills it up
it tastes so sweet
and so bitter
why can't i
just deliver

stand and deliver
(stand)
(stand)
stand and deliver

in the time
that we're apart
i figured out
what makes it hard
all the words
they go away
i can't face
another day
without the one
who breaks my heart
and gets to touch
the tender parts

baby's got
a lot of love
enough to fill
the sky above
enough to make
the sunlight shine
enough to leave
it all behind
i want to shine
i want to shimmer
receive the love
that makes it better

stand and deliver
(stand)
(stand)
stand and deliver

but all i've got's
this little chalice
born of fear
and forged with malice
all i've gots
this coat of mail
in its time
it served me well
it's useless now
as i wither
why can't i
just deliver

stand and deliver
(stand)
(stand)
stand and deliver

in the time
that we're apart
i figured out
(stand and deliver)
what makes it hard
all the words
they go away
i can't face
(stand and deliver)
another day
without the one
who breaks my heart
and gets to touch
(stand and deliver)
the tender parts

stand and deliver
