lyrics

Don't tell me, I already know
To follow where you want me to go
Don't tell me, I already know
To follow where you want me to go

Take me to the alter you can your do what you please
Jesus knows money doesn't grow on trees
Drop your penny candy down the well of hope
Your innocence is swinging from a ten foot rope
in the breeze

Don't tell me, I already know
To follow where you want me to go
Don't push me, I already know
To follow where you want me to go

To my father's garden, down the primrose path
Take me to the banks I can follow your laugh
You promised me a river, it's a dry creek bed
The Amazon is burning, the Black Seas dead

Watch out for the undertow, the tide is turning
never look back, see my bridges all burning down
on my knees and pray the following line
You can't buy heaven on borrowed time
You can't buy heaven on borrowed time
You can't buy heaven You can't buy heaven, no

You got to stop
You better look around
Going to listen
Put your ear to the ground

Don't tell me, I already know
To follow where you want me to go
Don't touch me, I already know
To follow where you want me to go

Barefoot in the kitchen, never cut off my hair
Had so many children got to hide them somewhere
Broom is in the closet going to sweep up this world
you'll never find heaven if you silence this girl

Watch out for the undertow, the tide is turning
never look back, see my bridges all burning down
on my knees and pray the following line
You can't buy heaven on borrowed time...
