3 Times Denied
You broke the bread, You poured the wine, You spoke your mysteries to stretch my mind See I didn't quite follow, How was your flesh in the bread that I swallowed? Dipping bread in a dish, calling out a traitor I'm hoping you'll explain this sooner or later I'm living with confusion, It's like a bad dream, Tell me, what's the conclusion? [Chorus] Three times denied Thought I was strong but it seems I was wrong Now I see, since now I've three times denied Your name, I'm stained with shame This wretchedness becomes my fame Your accusation, it plagues my mind Your prophecy leaves me horrified Denied you ain't never gonna be, Of all your crew, how could you think it was me? That would break your heart and make you moan Forsake your name, leave you alone With the sting of a coward's lie The signed decree that declares you die [Chorus] Nightmares run through my brain Cold sweat covers me like a sickening stain In this place between asleep and awake I shake from the cold and the fear of heartbreak And in the glow of the fire I turn into a liar To scared to say 'I know' And like a sheperdless sheep I run and I weep As I hear the cock crow [Chorus] You said three times My son do you love me? And I said 'My Lord God, you know that I do' You said three times My son do you love me? And I said three times 'Lord, You know that I do' You said three times My son do you love me? And I said 'My Lord God, you know that I do' [Chorus]
