Track Name: I Was A Wolf, If Not For A Moment
for just one moment there
i hated you
i took you inside my heart
and I murdered you
for just one moment there
i said I was sorry
i went before the Throne
and got on my knees

i thought I was lost without you
but I know I am already found without you

for just one moment there
you haunted me
you were laying on the stairs
a ghost in my dream
and you were standing there
outside in the heat
you said your goodbyes
but I wasn't ready

i was wrong to do that to you
to hold you as high as Him is what I shouldn't do
i thought I was lost without you
but I know I am already found without you
Track Name: Bury
how can you leave
someone you say
you love so much?
i do it too
but don't we all
abandon our loves?

i was so far away
and You brought me close
take my heart
and bury it right next to Yours
don't let me go

o, my Love
what a state You've found me in
best break my legs
before I run away
into the dark

i was so far away
and You brought me close
take my heart
and bury it right next to Yours
don't let me go

i was like a beast towards You
how long will it take
to make You my portion?
i know You said
"this will hurt just a bit"
if it's for You
then this is all worth it
Track Name: Harlot Heart
my heart is full of sad sad songs
my heart is full of doubt
You hold in Your hands
my harlot heart
prone to wander
i turn away

You made me
You fashioned me
whatever You want with me
is fine

i've been in the water
just a few times before
i've tasted and I know
i have seen
that You've been so good
to me this whole time
but I tell myself
i don't need You

all this time
i've been saying things I want to hear
and all this time...
Track Name: Love Will Hurt My Pride
this flesh of my heart on my sleeve
put it back inside
put it someplace safe

restore to me the joy that I had lost
tarry no more and bring me to my feet
let my broken bones sing

my heart has forgotten the spring
and all of the promises
You gave to me
You gave to me

restore to me the joy that I had lost
tarry no more and bring me to my feet
take me by the hand and make my quaking cease
though my heart may fail, O G-d, You are my strength
lead my mouth to speak

You couldn't think of anything else?
anything better than this?
You couldn't think of anything else,
anything better than this.

restore to me the joy that I had lost
tarry no more and bring me to my feet
take me by the hand and make my quaking cease
though my heart may fail, O G-d You are my strength
lead my mouth to speak

i'm not afraid that You don't love me
i'm just afraid of how much Your love
will hurt my pride
o G-d, hurt my pride
