crown of thorns lyrics – adora

i have failed so many times to become the person
the person that i long to be
perfection, the standard of my everything
unable to realize i bring my fall

perfection, a task not possible
i try so hard, not hard enough
my god, lived without sin
myself, i’m indulged in it

my god how long i will sing this song
and my god how long til i come home?
my god i’ll sing until i have no breath
and my god come and take me home

blood stained hands carry my sins
my hands carry no such wounds
your eyes have searched for me
i look away. i look away

i have failed to be the person i strive to be
i fall so short to the expectations
you wore the crown of th*rns, as i wear the crown of shame

your eternal sacrifice
has torn a whole inside my heart
i fail to sin, not for the last time
i will rise back up, and carry on

my flaw of the man i shouldn’t be
is not the man you died to see
so i’ll learn to be who i should be
and give back to you, and give less to me

/ adora lyrics
