    "Lover" Lyrics

    Derek Webb

    like a man comes to an alter i came into this town
    with the world upon my shoulders and promises passed down
    and i went into the water and my father, he was pleased
    i built it and i'll tear it down so you will be set free

    but i found thieves and salesmen living in my father's house
    i know how they got in here and i know how to get 'em out
    i'm turning this place over from floor to balcony
    and then just like these doves and sheep you will be set free

    i've always been a lover from before i drew a breath
    some things i loved easy and some i loved to death

    because love's no politician, it listens carefully
    of those who come i can't lose one, so you will be set free

    but go on and take my picture, go on and make me up
    i'll still be your defender, you'll be my missing son
    and i'll send out an army just to bring you back to me
    because regardless of your brother's lies you will be set free

    i am my beloveds and my beloved's mine
    so you bring all your history and i'll bring the bread and wine
    and we'll have us a party where all the drinks are on me
    then as surely as the rising sun you will be set free
