lyrics

VERSE 1:
I don't love You though i aim to
Though i claim to when i call Your Name.
I don't believe You. I just deceive You
And pretend sewn leaves like Eve's can hide my shame
Or like You are to blame.

CHORUS:
I would love to come before You
And lay my crown down on the ground at Your feet.
But I'm afraid I'm a little too late
Because i pawned them off at the shop down the street
For a price that cant be beat.

VERSE 2:
You don't amaze me. You don't even phase me.
All my words are just hollow phrases.
I must be crazy to think that maybe
Giving You all my love could leave me lazy
Or keep me complacent.

CHORUS:
I would love to come before You
And lay my crown down on the ground at Your feet.
But I'm afraid I'm a little too late
Because i pawned them off at the shop down the street
For a price that cant be beat.

BRIDGE:
I'm not broken and I'm not breaking.
My eyes are open and I stand naked.
I'm not overwhelmed. I'm not consumed.
I'm not all these things that I say to You
'Cause i lie to You.

CHORUS:
I would love to come before You
And lay my crown down on the ground at Your feet.
But I'm afraid I'm a little too late
Because i pawned them off at the shop down the street
For a price that cant be beat.
