Face To Face

Face To Face

Garth Brooks

There was a bad boy in the school yard
Waited on you every day
Seemed like every time you turned around
Well he was standin' in your way

Well he broke your glasses
The girls all laughed
As he pushed you to the floor
But then you stood up one day knowin'

You couldn't stand it anymore
And your gentle hand was finally clenched in rage
You were face to face

Face to face with the devil that you've been dreadin'
Eye to eye finally has arrived
But bad as it was, well now brother wasn't it better
Dealin' with him face to face

Your date showed up with flowers
And you thought your dreams had come
But with every passing hour
You felt it come undone

Then the night exploded and you begged him no
But he forever changed your life
And now he waits a judge and jury
Thinkin' you'll break down inside

And with a finger you can put his fists away
And you're face to face

Face to face with the devil that you've been dreadin'
Eye to eye finally has arrived
But bad as it was, well little sister wasn't it better
Dealin' with him face to face

'Cause it'll never go away
Until the fear that you are runnin' from is finally embraced

Drivin' by the grave yard
On a wicked winter's eve
And you're wonderin' why a man of faith
Is whistlin' nervously

Then you stop the car
And you hold your heart
'Cause you finally realize
Hell, the devil ain't in the darkness

He's a'rattlin' 'round inside
And with folded hands you truly start to pray
And you're face to face

Face to face with the devil that you've been dreadin'
Eye to eye finally has arrived
But bad as it was, well now brother wasn't it better
Dealin' with him face to face

'Cause it'll never go away
Until the fear that you are runnin' from is finally embraced
Face to face
