Now I have nothing, so God give me strength,
'Cause I'm weak in his way,
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.
He was the light that I'd bless.

He took my last chance at happiness.
So God give me strength.
God give me strength.
I can't hold on to him.

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 was the light that I'd bless.

He took my last chance at happiness.
So God give me strength.
God, if he'd grant me his indulgence and decline,
I might as well wipe him from my memory.

Fracture the spell as he becomes my enemy.
Maybe I was washed out
Like a lip print on a shirt.
See, I'm only human, I want him to hurt.

I want him to hurt.
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 was the light that I'd bless.
He took my last chance at happiness.
So God give me strength.
God give me strength.
