Baptized

BAPTIZED - Written by Carroll Bryant


Everything around us starts breaking apart
Breaking our hearts
Giving us reason to walk away

You and me struggle like a couple of fools
Breaking the rules
Take it or leave it and we live with the pain

We can’t seem to make decisions
One look reveals just how we feel
Don’t give this love a circumcision
I’m standing here
So let me make this clear
I love you
I need you
I don’t want to try and make it without you

And I want to be baptized in your eyes
Maybe you can save me with some Harlequin nights
And I realize that you’re right
Can’t battle my history for the rest of my life
It never will be easy
Love is never for the blind
And I want to be baptized in your eyes
So I can baptize you with mine

Every step taken is another step forward
Watching with horror
One foot up and two feet down

You and me differ like there’s no tomorrow
Making it harder
Giving each other the big run around

We can’t seem to find an answer
One touch at large can supercharge
Let’s give this love just one more prayer
I’m standing here
So let me make this clear
I know you
I want you
I don’t ever want to try living without you

And I want to be baptized in your eyes
Maybe you can save me with some Harlequin nights
And I realize that you’re right
Can’t battle my history for the rest of my life
It never will be easy
Love is never for the blind
And I want to be baptized in your eyes
So I can baptize you with mine

Let’s put it to sleep
With an angels voice to a lullaby
There’s so much to keep
Let’s give this love just one more try
And maybe our sun will finally shine
If you are the one then maybe, so am I

Everything around us starts breaking apart
Breaking our hearts
Giving us reason to walk away

You and me struggle like a couple of fools
Breaking the rules
Take it or leave it and we live with the pain

We can’t seem to make decisions
One look reveals just how we feel
Don’t give this love a circumcision
I’m standing here
So let me make this clear
I love you
I need you
I don’t want to try and make it without you

And I want to be baptized in your eyes
Maybe you can save me with some Harlequin nights
And I realize that you’re right
Can’t battle my history for the rest of my life
It never will be easy
Love is never for the blind
And I want to be baptized in your eyes
So I can baptize you with mine
So I can baptize you with mine
So I can baptize you all night
