The Final Straw Testo

Testo The Final Straw

As I raise my head to broadcast my objectionAs your latest triumph draws the final strawWho died and lifted you up to perfection?And what silenced me is written into law.I can't believe where circumstance has thrown meAnd I turn my head awayIf I look I'm not sure that I could face you.Not again. Not today. Not today.If hatred makes a play on me tomorrowAnd forgiveness takes a back seat to revengeThere's a hurt down deep that has not been correctedThere's a voice in me that says you will not win.And if I ignore the voice inside,Raise a half glass to my home.But it's there that I am most afraid,And forgetting doesn't hold.It doesn't hold. Now I don't believe and I never didThat two wrongs make a right.If the world were filled with the likes of youThen I'm putting up a fight. Putting up a fight.Putting up a fight. Make it right. Make it right.Now love cannot be called into question.Forgiveness is the only hope I hold.And love-- love will be my strongest weapon.I do believe that I am not alone.For this fear will not destroy me.And the tears that have been shedIt's knowing now where I am weakestAnd the voice in my head. In my head.Then I raise my voice up higherAnd I look you in the eyeAnd I offer love with one condition.With conviction, tell me why.Tell me why.Tell me why.Look me in the eye.Tell me why.
