7. I Defy You

I defy you
convince me now
that there is tragedy
or let me be
I sit on the floor, listen for the muzzle at my door
The scrape of an axe down the corridor
I defy you
to find me
 
here come the wheel turning one more time
at the top I fall, at the bottom I will rise

Make me want to live forever
Baby I could die right now
let me forget that I ever saw this before

where are you
I am here
and the morning
will appear
threaten me with thunder or threaten me with the rain
burn me with fire or smother me again
you talk loud  
I barely hear you

here come the wheel turning one more time
at the top I fall, at the bottom I will/can rise

Make me want to live forever
Baby I could die right now
let me forget that I ever saw this before
