better man lyrics – america gomorrah

where do i begin?
i’m still lost in my sin
no matter what i do
i still fall short of you

id like think that i could go
beyond where i am
but each time i try
i find myself back where i started

i’ve heard it said
its easier to die for you than live
i pray that in the end
its the fighting of the battle
not the triumph

he was a better man than i
he was a better man than i
id like to think that i would die
for such a better man than i

how do i stay in the spirit
as long as my flesh lives?
nuno you said it best
“my miracles run weak”

release me from my bonds
i can’t take it any more
cant you see?
my flesh, i abhor

i’ve heard it said
its easier to die for you than live
i pray that in the end
its the fighting of the battle
not the triumph

he was a better man than i
he was a better man than i
no worse than me you can’t deny
you are a better man than i

though i battle my flesh i wont give it up!
no, i will fight till the end!
i know that the dying is worth the living
i give you all that i am

lord give me the strength to
pick up my cross yet again
turn your sword on me lord,
i lay down for you again

i know that it’s true
its easier to die for you than live
but i pray that in the end
its the fighting of the battle!

you are a better man than i
you are a better man than i
the son sent, for me, to die
jesus, you are a better man than i

tears of sorrow i cry
for the son sent down, for me he died!
i will fight all the days of my life
you are a better man than i
