Love Tried To Welcome Me
These are my hands, but what can they give me?

These are my eyes, but they cannot see

These are my arms, but they don't know tenderness

And I must confess that I am usually drawn to sadness

And loneliness has never been a stranger to me, but



Chorus:



Love tried to welcome me

But my soul drew back

Guilty of lust and sin

Love tried to take me in



These are my lips, but they whisper sorrow

This is my voice, but it's telling lies

I know how to laugh, but I don't know happiness

And I must confess, instead of spring, it's always winter

And my heart has always been a lonely hunter, but still



Chorus2:



Love tried to welcome me

But my soul drew back

I was covered with dust and sin

Love tried to take me in



Love tried to break me



And I must confess, instead of spring, it's always winter

And my heart has always been a lonely hunter, but still



(chorus, inserting "I was" before "Guilty")

(chorus2, removing "I was")



[Love tried to break me]

Love tried to welcome me

But my soul drew back

Guilty of lust and sin

[I was covered with dust, covered with sorrow]

Love tried to take me in

[Covered]



Still, love tried to welcome me

But my soul drew back

[Guilty of lust and sin]

Covered with dust and sin

Love tried to take me in



[Love tried to break me]

Love tried to welcome me

[Love tried to welcome me]

But my soul drew back

Guilty of lust and sin

[But my soul drew back]

Love tried to take me in

[I was covered with sadness]
