lyrics

10. TAKE NO PRISONERS (time)
The clouds broke in half and at last appeared the sun — or the moon
I don't know who it finally was
And the three dear sisters of legend and lore
whispered, here we are, come to hurt you once more
I said, thank you, thank you
for I'm deep in my lessons
deep in my lessons
and I needed one more

To forgive you (forgive you)
To forgive me (forgive me)
My jealousy, guilty, will rob me no more

The bite of my bitterness bit me before, like a rabies shot and a kick at the door
and I hated you and longed for your failure
But the three dear sisters of legend and lore
whispered, here we are, weren't we here before?
I said, yes, thank you
for I've no wish to stay here
no wish to stay here
and you remind me i must rise

To forgive you (forgive you)
To forgive me (please forgive me)
My jealousy, guilty, will rob me no more
I owe nothing to credit, and I am at last my own keeper,
and I'll keep nothing more
and take no prisoners in the war of emotion

I released the resentments of habit and fault,
and I washed from the walls the speeches we wrote to each other
And I tried to meet your eye but the words stuck in my throat
so I buried the rotten egg of fear in the back compost
And I ran over here — to tell you — I'm ready...

The clouds broke in half and at last appeared the sun — or the moon
I don't know who it finally was
And the three dear sisters of legend and lore
whispered, here we are, over there is the door
I said, thank you, thank you
for it's time I was going
time I was going
it's time I was gone

To let you be free (you be free)
To let me be free (me be free)
My sanctity holds me till I sleep like a child
I owe nothing to credit and I am at last my own keeper
and I'll keep nothing more
and take no prisoners in the war of emotion
