( Colin Hay )

A moment of your time now
As mine is closing in on me
A simple farewell rhyme to
Anyone who hears me

I have walked in shadows
I have walked in darkness
My life now lies behind me
I have only one tomorrow

My name is Jake
I have made more than one mistake
Where I lost all sense of good reason
Now my time has come
There’s nowhere I can run
Oh Lord, please give me courage

The Sister, she’s my saviour
She’s my one and only friend
I know I do so love her
She says that she will miss me

Tomorrow they will burn me
They say that it will cause no pain
But what greatly concerns me
Is who of them would really know

Thy kingdom come
Thy will be done
On Earth as it is in Heaven
With one more setting sun
And dinner just for one
Oh Lord, please give me courage

As the night grows darker
My fear it now surrounds me
I wish I could be stronger
Oh Sister, can you hear me

Take this wretched soul
Try to make it whole
It’s true I have been a sinner
I know I’ve done wrong
And all I have is this song
Oh Lord, please give me courage

Thy kingdom come
Thy will be done
On Earth as it is in Heaven
ow my time has come
There’s nowhere I can run
Oh Lord, please give me courage
