Well, the devil came to me Said "You're not strong, you're not strong You're strong enough, you'll never carry on" Well, the devil came to me Said "You're not strong, you're not strong You're strong enough, you'll never carry on" Well, the devil came to me Said "You'll be lonely You'll be lonely And you'll see your own true happiness if only" Well, the devil came to me Said "You're not strong, you're not strong You're strong enough, you'll never carry on" So I said to the devil Yeah, I said to the devil Well I looked him in his bright blue eyes, and I said - (You've got to listen to get the rest!)

Well, I’m lonely, but I’m not going out Locking myself down right here til we know what it's all about And I don’t know just how much longer I can carry on But I know it’s just the price of pressing on Well, I’m weary, but I’m not giving in To the peddlers of salvation or the politics of sin They tempt you with normality and with the promise nothing’s wrong But we know it’s just the price of pressing on So through another morning with a mask upon my face My bleary eyes searching for a novel kind of grace Because we know a new world’s just about to dawn And we know it’s just the price of pressing on

Blues is my mercy Blues is my only mercy now

Oh, love This is a new world now Oh, love Maybe a true world now All lies have been laid away The past is all faded away And I’m learning more every day Oh, love Must be a true world now Oh, love This is our one world now Oh, love Maybe a fun world now No tears, please All of our greifs Have been grieved out long ago Oh, love Must be a fun world now Oh, love This is a new world now Oh, love Maybe a true world now All lies have been laid away The past is all faded away And we’re all learning more every day Oh, love Must be a true world now
