lyrics

You can beat my body, you can break my bones
Wait till my back is turned and then throw stones
But I never shall walk this world alone,
And my spirit is at rest.

I had come more than a thousand miles
To see the rumours in the coldest eyes
Try to live my life in a manner of peace
But this time there would be no relief

So I walked through the fire misunderstood
And the people laughed like I knew they would
And I cried until my waters ran dry
But the spirit would not let me die

When your friends have shown their teeth at you
In a subtle way like enemies do
You must rest your case with God above
And he will quiet you with the greater love

I will not bend I will not break
Or drown myself in Sorrows Lake
For my name in carved in a living stone
And I will never walk this world alone

You can beat my body, you can break my bones
Wait till my back is turned and then throw stones
But I never shall walk this world alone,
And my spirit is at rest.
