  • When the voice says
    You should not stumble
    You should not frighten
    Or feel so ashamed
    'Cause all the chores are light
    And all the psalms are wiped

    When you smash it
    Make it easy
    When you want to
    Stand alone
    My friends are praying
    For a good soft reason
    For a good soft reason
    To make them laugh again

    I'll make you laugh if you want to
    I'll make you smile at the footsteps
    I'll make you laugh at the winter
    And bring you back down to land
    But if you stay on the wrong side
    And if you laugh at the sunlight
    I'm not asking for comfort
    I'm just after the same
    I'm just after the same

    If you winced then
    Why the man won't be coming
    If you waste us
    It's what we earned
    And if you call soulless
    About the beginnings
    I'll call for easiness
    Come back to the world
    Come back in the open
    Stand now by the root's life
    Come out to show us
    You'll be back home again

    Now I'm not superstitious
    About being so alarming
    About moving with the changes
    About holding your hand
    Now I believe when they told me
    It was all down to fever
    It's all down to the harm that's
    The harm that's in your hands
    Harm in your hands
    Harm in your hands

    Now, I'm not saying that I want you
    It's like taking your chances
    It's like hoping for a straight line
    When I'm falling into space
    I'm just talking about the license
    That I'd like you to give me
    That I'd like you to give me
    Command
    Come on dance
    Come on dance

    I'm toting my whole life
    And I'm toting the good side
    And I hope you believe it
    When I say - I'll see you through
    There's nobody will ache so much
    Nobody will so much
    Ache so much for you

    I'll make you laugh if you want to
    I'll make you smile at the footsteps
    I'll make you laugh at the winter
    And bring you back down to land
    But if you stay on the wrong side
    And if you laugh at the sunlight
    I'm not asking for comfort
    I'm just after the same
    I'm just after the same

    Now I'm not superstitious
    About being so alarming
    About moving with the changes
    About holding your hand
    Now I believe when they told me
    It was all down to fever
    It's all down to the harm that's
    The harm that's in your hands
    Harm in your hands
    Harm in your hands
