Just One Command

JUST ONE COMMAND - Written by Carroll Bryant


This is my secret
When I look into your eyes I have to look away
There's no telling how far I could fall
There's no telling what I might say

My heart stands before your spirit
I hear the whispers of the night
I try to run while they talk to me
I try to run before I die

In the fight that is your love
Give to me just one command
Let me prove to you my memory
Beg for mercy for this man

You know I want you to hurt me
This I can't deny
My pain seems to bring you pleasure
So tell me one more lie 

More than what it can be measured
This life gives me everything its got
My heart is buried treasure
Really
No
Really not

I listen to the whispers 
I know I've said it all before
I try to run but then I never
Even get to make it to the door

In the fight that is your love
Give to me just one command
Let me prove to you my misery
Beg for mercy for this man

I want you to own me
Like you would a broken toy
Put me on layaway 
Two batteries and enjoy

I swear I never saw you coming
Not even in the nick of time
I didn't want to move a mountain
Or trade a dollar for a dime

In the death of a stranger 
The danger is always lurking in the dark
I have no long lost relations
Only a time bomb for a heart

In the fight that is your love
Give to me just one command
Let me prove to you my machinery 
Beg for mercy for this man

You can be my slave in exchange you take my grave
You take my place
The old switch-a-roo
Tit for tat and me for you

Soon the waters will cover the entire earth
I sure hope you grow some fins
Or learn how to swim
I can breathe underwater
I can do it now because I did it then

In the fight that is your love
Give to me just one command
Let me prove to you my mockery 
Beg for mercy for this man

In the fight that is your freedom
Let me be more than your friend
Now you may beg for my mercy
Or give to me just one command
