Lyrics

Escape From Me

Written By: Jonathan McCarthy

I drift down this road again
It’s ending is dead,
a dead end road,
a dead end road
It’s all too familiar
It’s all so predictable

I want what you want
And everybody wants free
Free, free, free indeed yeah

Could you be my escape from me
Redemption, salvation from this dust
Of the earth

I see Your graces escape
It’s all so familiar
It’s so very unpredictable
I give you an inch you take a mile

I want what you want
And everybody wants free
Free, free, free indeed yeah

Could you be my escape from me
Redemption, salvation from this dust
Of the earth
