providence lyrics – kamelot

music-kamelot lyrics-pavlicko

here – i stand before you all
this body’s been beaten and battered
but i will not fall
time – it may change me
as i look back upon this cold life
i see nothing but misery
push me:pull me:
i will not turn away
all this:pain will:
prove fruitful one day
you’ll see
as i stand i see legions before me
they drink and they dance
in the night
without thinking i unsheathe my sword
my body is ready to fight
i walk into the fire
they say that i’ve sunk so low
but my goal lies much higher
i will, not lie
down in the grave
if they, want me
i am not afraid
tempting providence once again
i fall to my knees and my hands
tempting providence
when will this madness end
you made me the man that i am…
now
that i am old and wise
the fire has dimmed to a wisp
but i’m still alive
oh-
the end is much closer
i never thought i’d see the day
when it would be over
hold me, tell me today is the day
all this, pain will soon go away
tempting providence once again
i fall to my knees and my hands
when will this nightmare end
tempting providence once again
this nightmare will soon reach its’ end
