Everlasting Arms

I took your counsel and came to ruin
Leave me to myself, leave me to myself

I took your counsel and came to ruin
Leave me to myself, leave me to myself

Oh I was made to live without you
But I’m never gonna understand, never understand

Oh I was made to live without you
But I’m never gonna understand, never understand

Hold me in your everlasting arms
Looked up full of fear
Trapped beneath a chandelier that’s going down

I thought it over and drew the curtain
Leave me to my cell, leave me to my cell

I hummed the Dies Irae as you played the hallelujah
Leave me to my cell, leave me to my cell

If you’d been made to serve a master,
You’d be frightened by the open hand,
Frightened by the hand

Could I ever be made to serve a master?
Well, I’m never gonna understand, never understand

CHORUS
