lyrics

Deliver me
keep me packed up and pretty for you
deliver me
bring me back now
forever anew
deliver me
to the soft trees
up and down the rows kept perfect
lie me there
and I’ll be waiting for you

Deliver me
and release me mother father be brave
deliver me
lay beneath me all the love that you saved
deliver me
on my weak knees
ashes to the lost breeze
give me no gods
I don't want them anymore

Deliverance
I’ll be setting free forever
Deliverance
throw these ashes to the river
Deliverance
will they liberate me
Deliverance
will they pray now for me
pray now for me
pray now for me?

Deliver me
sew my mind shut to never be seen
deliver me
and show the pictures
that they keep from the screen
deliver me
handle with care
my heart in a box
and wrap me tight
and I’ll be suited up
and tidy for you

And if I’m gone
make me into what you
want me to be
a symbol song
break my body
and you’ll fade it from me
now keep me close
keep me memory all cradled
until I’ll be alive
and around where
do you want me to be?

Deliverance
I’ll be setting free forever
Deliverance
throw these ashes to the river
Deliverance
will they liberate me
Deliverance
will they pray now for me
pray now for me
pray now for me?

You will never be alone again
promise you that, promise you that
I will never be alone again
promise me that, promise me that
You will never be alone again
promise you that, promise you that
I will never be alone again
promise me that, promise me that
promise me that, promise me that
promise me that, promise me that
promise me that, promise me that.
