Lyrics

(Source: Faith and Courage)

The woman named Iris gave birth to the goddess
In her son, who can't say his name
Because of all the pain.
I miss you, but I'm glad you're gone.
I want you, but I'm not alone.
I'm haunted by you.
But I'll get you gone, if it takes me all my life long.
Take back the pain you gave me.
Take back what doesn't belong to me.
Take back the shame you gave me.
Take back what doesn't belong to me.
I'm Irish, I'm English, I'm Moslem, I'm Jewish,
I'm a girl, I'm a boy,
And the goddess meant for me only joy.
And real love requires you give up those loves
Whom you think you love best.
Love puts you through the test,
And only loyal love will bring me happiness.
Take back the rage you gave me.
Take back the hatred you gave me for me.
Take back the anger that nearly killed me.
Take back what doesn't belong to me.
And real love requires you
Give up those loves
That you think you love best.
Love put you through the test
And only loyal love will bring you happiness.
Take back the pain you gave me.
You take back what doesn't belong to me.
Take back the shame you gave me.
Take back what doesn't belong to me.
Take back what doesn't belong to me.
Take back what doesn't belong to me.
