Strip away the dirt from me
That always holds me down
Wash me clean completely
Let the ashes fall to the ground
Give comfort from your arms
Shelter from the cold wind blowing
With unbound hope and whispered charms
Renew blood that had stopped flowing
Better to feel pain from stricken heart
Than to laugh instead of cry
Better to let things run their course
Than to feel dead instead of alive

One touch is all that is needed
Upon the heart, death defeated
