  • [Chorus:]
    Throw down the sword
    The fight is done and over
    Neither lost, neither won
    To cast away the fury of the battle
    And turn my weary eyes for home

    There were times when I stood at death's own door
    Only hoping for an answer

    [Chorus]

    There were times when I stood at death's own door
    Only searching for an answer Writer/s: ANDREW POWELL, DAVID TURNER, MARTIN TURNER, STEVE UPTON
