lyrics

Well I'm just a kid flyin' a kite
Yeah, I've got You strung up on top of this line
Then I tug You into the wind
And expect You to duck and dive at my every whim

But that's not the way it works
No, that's not the way it works

'Cause I'm pleasantly surprised
To find You walking by my side
Every day of my life
And I know I've felt You dry
All these guilty tears I've cried

Well I'm just a leaf blown in the wind
I'm carried along from sin to sin
But is my failing will to blame
Or am I just stubbornly deaf, dumb, and lame

But You dare to take me back
Oh, You dare to take me back

So I'm pleasantly surprised
To find You walking by my side
Every day of my life
And I know I've felt You dry
All these guilty tears I've cried

So bolster the will of my heart
As it battles these fleshly desires
Hold fast and tear me apart
Leaving sin to the funeral pyre
