  • In my defence what is there to say
    All the mistakes we made must be faced today
    It's not easy now knowing where to start
    While the world we love tears itself apart

    I'm just a singer with a song
    How can I try to right the wrong
    For just a singer with a melody
    I'm caught in between
    With a fading dream

    In my defence what is there to say
    We destroy the love - it's our way
    We never listen enough never face the truth
    Then like a passing song
    Love is here and then it's gone

    I'm just a singer with a song
    How can I try to right the wrong
    For just a singer with a melody
    I'm caught in between
    With a fading dream

    I'm just a singer with a song
    How can I try to right the wrong
    I'm just a singer with a melody
    I'm caught in between with a fading dream
    Caught in between with a fading dream
    Caught in between with a fading dream

    Oh what on earth
    Oh what on earth
    How do I try
    Do we live or die

    Oh help me God
    Please help me Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
