Allison Moorer – The Ties That Bind Lyrics

By Azlyrics

[Verse 1]
Darkness all around me
Ancient, cold, and scary
Walking wounded, walking unworthy
Did you know what that was teaching me to be?

[Verse 2]
I wander and I worry
Can’t get going even though I hurry
I’ve been dragging your legacy
And the weight has just about taken me down

[Chorus]
Why do I carry what isn’t mine?
Can I take the good and leave the rest behind?
Can I let go and watch it all unwind?
Can I untie the ties the bind?

[Verse 3]
Shadows in the hallway
Spirits whispering my name
Ain’t gonna get me, no not one more day
I am strong enough to stake my own claim

[Chorus]
Why do I carry what isn’t mine?
Can I take the good and leave the rest behind?
Can I let go and watch it all unwind?
Can I untie the ties the bind?
