Like a Preacher Lyrics

Are you lying there on the cold dark ground
Your skin and bones are bare you stare without a sound
What is it in your mind that lights the fuse this time
What do you want so bad that you have never had

Could it be dangerous to light the flame and just
Feel the warmth again make it rise again
Remember your last time you tried to let it in
It scorched the walls, torched the halls
And then it melted your skin

Like a preacher save you from the fire
I won't let you burn
Like a preacher gonna lift you higher
I won't let you burn

Oh I won't let you burn

The feelings you repress the thoughts you don't confess
They grow inside the dark make ashes of your heart
You recklessly adore the idols keeping score
But no-one ever wins they just start the game again
You chose the cross you bare and pick the chains you wear
Your heavens in your mind your hells a valentine
Come closer now express this longing so divine
On your knees be blessed let it possess you one more time

I am a sermoniser, an on the street evangeliser
Virtuous and sanctified
You innocence is glorified there's a part that's incomplete
Your hungering is so discrete
Take this now for it's my body a little death can be so godly

Like a preacher save you from the fire
I won't let you burn I'll save you
Come come
Come follow me to the deep inside
Where heaven is love is alive
Come follow me to the deep inside
Where heaven is love is alive
