They can kill me if they want to,
break my body into pieces,
they can
scatter my soul to the winds;
but you’d better not believe them
if they say I’ve been defeated:
I’ve paid more than double
for your sins
(I have paid more than double for your sins)

They can kill me
if they want to,
break my body
into pieces,
they can
scatter my soul
to the winds;
but you’d better not believe them
if they say
I’ve been defeated:
I am love:
I am coming back for you.

I am love:
I am coming back for you.

I am love:
I am coming back for you
(for you)

I am love
(more than double)
back for you
I am coming (back)
I am love
(I am) coming back
for you
for you
for you
