Lyrics

Ted Neeley

I only want to say
If there is a way
Take this cup away from me
For I don't want to taste its poison
Feel it burn me, I have changed
I'm not as sure as when we started
Then I was inspired
Now, I'm sad and tired
Listen surely I've exceeded expectations, tried for three years
Seems like thirty
Could u ask as much from any other man

But if I die
See the saga through and do the things you ask of me
Let them hate me hit me hurt me
Nail me to their tree
I want to know I want to know my god
I want to know I want to know my god
I want to see I want to see my god
I want to see I want to see my god
Why I should die
Would I be more noticed than I ever was before
Would the things I've said and done matter anymore
I'd have to know I'd have to know my lord
I'd have to know I'd have to know my lord
I'd have to see I'd have to see my lord
I'd have to see I'd have to see my lord
If I die what will be my reward
If I die what will be my reward
I have to know I have to know my lord
Have to know I have to know my lord

Why should I die
Oh why should I die
Can you show me now that I would not be killed in vain
Show me just a little of your omnipresent brain
Show me there's a reason for you wanting me to die
Far too kean on where and how
But not so hot on why
Alright, I'll die
Just watch me die
See how, see how I'll die
Oh, just watch me die

Then I was inspired
Now I'm sad and tired
After all uve tried for three years
Seemed like ninety
Why then am I scared to finish what I started
What you started, I didn't start it
God, thy will is hard
But you hold every card
I will drink your cup of poison
Nail me to your cross and break me bleed me beat me kill me
Take now before I change my mind
