Monastery

lyrics

And I know what I know from the monastery
I don't talk very much so be patient with me
I only say what I mean
I learned to be a man at the monastery
If that gives you the right to be frightened of me
Then you don't know who I am

I live another life
Terminally out of place
Vowed to never turn away
When I did I saw your face

And I go where I go where I want you to be
If I hold out my hand will you hold on to me
And stop the shivering inside?

And I want you to have what I wanted for me
They say life comes and goes well it's long gone for me
And I don't want to be left behind
And I know it's too late to be who I could be
But for once in my life I am who I believe
Although it makes me cry

Torn apart inside
By ghosts of comfort and disgrace
Vowed to never turn away
When I did I saw your face

And I know what I know from the monastery
I learned to be a man at the monastery
If I hold out my hand will you hold out your hand to me?
To me?
