Lyrics

Beggar (c)1999loisgillespie

Well I couldn't;t take the pain
So I numbed it for awhile
Didn't;t wanna feel all the pain
So I numbed it for awhile

Then I came crawling back to you
Crawling on my hands and knees
I was a beggar at a banquet
Crying please

I was stung by the rain
Standing naked in my skin
Out in the pouring rain
Standing naked in my skin

I was caught by surprise by the love in your eyes
I was a beggar at a banquet
Back pocket full of lies

Bridge
I was caught in a storm and the lightening fell
I was running for shelter and I felt like hell
Caught in a storm and the lightening fell
Running for shelter and I felt like hell

Well I couldn't;t face the heartache
So I buried all the bones
Didn't wanna face all that heartache
And so I buried all the bones

Then I found them all scattered
'Round my backyard
I was a beggar at a banquet
Forced to drop my guard

What's the moral of this story
'Bout a life so lived
Maybe without love and glory
There's not one little thing that I can give

Without truth without grace
Another beggar at a banquet
Disappears without a trace
