If I remember the night that we met
Tasted a wine that I'll never forget
Opened the doorway and saw through the light
Motions of movement and I felt alive

She spoke of freedom, "a way in", she said
A wisdom that took me away from the bed
Spoke of the glory that we have become
I felt forgiven in all I've become

Small, tasteless and flawed
Hoping to see, blinded like me
You tried to understand, but you're just a man
Open to scorn just like me

Failure again
Tried to pretend
Who you were then
Who you are now

Hating the law(Lord?) (hating the law(Lord?))
Hating the law(Lord?) (hating the law(Lord?))

Small, tasteless and flawed
Hoping to see, blinded like me
You tried to understand, but you're just a man
Open to scorn just like me

Failure again
Tried to pretend
Who you were then
Who you are now

Hating the law(Lord?) (hating the law(Lord?))
Hating the law(Lord?) (hating the law(Lord?))
