Back To You

I don't want to live always in your shadow
So I can't keep going on the current path I take
The path I walk beside you
The path that's wrecking me…
And this is what I say to you in my mind
Give it up, you're never gonna want to let me go
No, oh
And what you want's never gonna make me happy too
So give it up, I'm never comin' back to you

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;

That out of dust created man,
