I Can Live Without You

And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give
And you give
And you give yourself away
My hands are tied, my body bruised
She’s got me with
Nothing to win and
Nothing left to lose (U2)

I Can Live Without You

Famous words of a painful song
It has taken so very, very long
For every event all year thru
You were standing in the wings
Than events of which I chose
Decisions alone if I may be bold
Washed like the rain over my face
For I in freedom and I alone made
But the train is long and slowly moves
Revealing the passing chain of events
Tests me again on the bed of nails
A lifetime journey I would presume
When I catch you standing in the gloom
A new act for I claim these days my own.
For my life has been returned in new
Things glorious and things quite new
Love brand new and spiritual growth
Friends who were there and cared the most
New me who survives living on the edge.
Carl James
