When i walk beside her
I am the better man
When i look to leave her
I always stagger back again

Once i built an ivory tower
So i could worship from above
When i climb down to be set free
She took me in again

There's a big
A big hard sun
Beating on the big people
In the big hard world

When she comes to greet me
She is mercy at my feet
I see her inner charm
She just throws it back at me

Once i dug an early grave
To find a better land
She just smiled and laughed at me
And took her rules back again


Once i stood to lose her
And i saw what i had done
Bowed down and threw away the hours
Of her garden and her sun

So i tried to want her
I turned to see her weep
40 days and 40 nights
And its still coming down on me
