Work Lyrics- Jars Of Clay

“Work” Lyrics
by: Jars Of Clay

Just in case
I will leave my things packed
So I can run away
I cannot trust these voices

I don`t have a line of prospects
That can give some kind of peace
There is nothing left to cling to
That can bring me sweet release

I have no fear of drowning
It`s the breathing that`s taking all this work

Do you know what I mean when I say, “I don`t want to be alone”?
What I mean when I say, “I don`t want to be alone”

Empty spaces
With shadows hit by streetlights
Warning signs and weight
Of tired conversations

In the absence of a shoulder
In the abscess of a thief
On the brink of this destruction
On the eve of bittersweet

Now all the demons look like prophets
And I`m living out
Every word they speak
Every word they speak

Do you know what I mean when I say, “I don`t want to be alone”?
What I mean when I say, “I don`t want to be alone”
What I mean when I say, “I don`t want to be alone”

Do you know what I mean when I say, “I don`t want to be alone”?
What I mean when I say, “I don`t want to be alone”
What I mean when I say, “I don`t want to be alone”
Alone, alone, I don`t want to be alone

I have no fear of drowning
Its the breathing that`s taking all this work
