lyrics

An empty bowl can carry fresh water
Every girl in the world is somebody’s daughter
I’ve carried this weight, my heart like a boulder
So come take my coat and wrap it round your shoulder

Well who gets to choose who lives and who’s a martyr
Sometimes I wish this fire’d never started
It seems every day the world’s getting colder
So come take my coat and wrap it round your shoulder

Because it’s cold outside, I hear the wind in the trees
Stay close by my side, let’s walk in the evening breeze

Will we all rise up, throw the gates wide open
Will you stay with me, when the world leaves me broken
You’re looking younger girl, I’m just feeling older
So come take my coat, wrap it round your shoulder

Because it’s cold outside, I hear the wind in the trees
Stay close by my side, let’s walk in the evening breeze

Every child in the world should know a life of laughter
The days just disappear, why grow up any faster
I thought I understood but lived my life like a soldier
So come take my coat and wrap it round my shoulder

Will we all be saved if we beg for forgiveness
Does God wipe the slate clean or is it just bad for business
I got a love for you girl, it smokes and it smolders
So come take my coat, wrap it round your shoulders
