Worlds Apart
by Jars Of Clay

Album: 20
by Jars Of Clay


I am the only one to blame for this
Somehow it all ends up the same
Soaring on the wings of selfish pride
I flew too high and like Icarus I collide

With a world I try so hard to leave behind
To rid myself of all but love, to give and die

To turn away and not become
Another nail to pierce the skin of one who loves
More deeply than the oceans,
more abundant than the tear
Of a world embracing every heartache

Can I be the one to sacrifice
Or grip the spear and watch the blood and water flow

To love you - Take my world apart
To need you - I am on my knees
To love you - Take my world apart
To need you - Broken on my knees

All said and done I stand alone
Amongst remains of a life I should not own
It takes all I am to believe
In the mercy that covers me

Did you really have to die for me
All I am for all you are
What I need and what I believe are worlds apart
And I pray

To love you - Take my world apart
To need you - I am on my knees
To love you - Take my world apart
To need you - Broken on my knees
On my knees

I look beyond the empty cross
forgetting what my life has cost
Wipe away the crimson stains
Dull the nails that still remain
More and more I need you now
I owe you more each passing hour
Battles between grace and pride
I gave up not so long ago
So steal my heart and take the pain
and wash the feet and cleanse my pride
Take the selfish, take the weak
and all the things I cannot hide

Take the beauty, take my tears
Sin-soaked heart, make it yours
Take my world all apart
Take it now, take it now
And serve the ones that I despise
Speak the words I can't deny
Watch the world I used to love
Fall to dust and blow away

I look beyond the empty cross
Forgetting what my life has cost
Wipe away the crimson stains
Dull the nails that still remain
So steal my heart and take the pain
Take the selfish, take the weak
and all the things i cannot hide
Take the beauty, take my tears
Take my world apart, take my world apart
I pray, and I pray, and I pray
Take my world apart

Worlds apart
