God Give Me Strength

(words sung by the character in the movie given in brackets)
Now I have nothing, so God give me strength
’cause I’m weak in her [his] wake
And if I’m strong I might still break
And I don’t have anything to share
That I won’t throw away into the air

That song is sung out
This bell is rung out [this belle is wrung out]
[he] she was the light that I’d bless
[he] she took my last chance at happiness
So God give me strength, God give me strength

I can’t hold onto [him] her, God give me strength
When the phone doesn’t ring
And I’m lost in imagining
Everything that kind of love is worth
As I tumble back down to the earth

That song is sung out
This bell is rung out
[he] she was the light that I’d bless
[he] she took my last chance at happiness
So God give me strength,

God if [he’d] she’d grant me [his] her indulgence and decline
I might as well wipe [him] her from my memory
Fracture the spell as [he] she becomes my enemy
Maybe I was washed out like a lip-print on his shirt
See, I’m only human, I want him to hurt
I want him
I want him to hurt

[instrumental]
Since I lost the power to pretend
That there could ever be a happy ending

That song is sung out
This bell is rung out
[he] she was the light that I’d bless
[he] she took my last chance at happiness
So God give me strength, God give me strength
