lyrics

Though it’s dark the sun is blinding
And I’m fighting deep within
The subtle urge to keep from sliding
To keep on trying, to begin

If it falls on me on judgment day
And there is nothing left to say

I’ll cross my arms with waters rising
No revising where I’ve been,
And what I’ve done. It’s not surprising
Admitted fault is pardoned sin

So I’ll pack my bags and quit my crying,
My nail biting and slip away
Hop in the car and just start driving
Keep on riding ‘till I find my way

And if it falls on me on judgment day
And there is nothing left to say

I’m gonna cross my arms with waters rising
No revising where I’ve been,
And what I’ve done. It’s not surprising
Admitted fault is pardoned sin

When I meet a wall, I’ll just start climbing
Soon reviving the state I’m in
f I start to fall, I’ll just start flying
Like the dove on the tail of a firing pin

‘Cause if it falls on me on judgment day
And there is nothing left to say

I wanna cross my arms with waters rising
No revising where I’ve been,
And what I’ve done. It’s not surprising
Admitted fault is pardoned sin

Through the clouds, the sun is shining
There’s no more hiding
From the clashing lightning
And, yes it’s frightening
But I’ll just keep smiling
‘Cause fear’s enticing
Or so they say

With new eyes open I’ll keep on thriving
Always striving to succeed
Bide my time and keep on timing
Not arriving, I concede

But if it falls on me on judgment day
And there is nothing left to say

I’ll cross my arms with waters rising
No revising where I’ve been,
And what I’ve done. It’s not surprising
Admitted fault is pardoned sin
