Capo 3

C2- 000230

Am I a barren temple left for newer ways
                Am                      C
Of speaking mysteries my veils cannot contain
Should I prepare to winter spend again
             Am                               C     Am-single strum
Of silent centuries' speech for only certain men

What if I wait to find You've gone
What if Your presence was withdrawn
And I was mistaken all along
To think that I could become your home
                                Em    Am  C2  C
It'd be no surprise to finally know

             Em    Am  C2  C
I am truly alone
                                        Em         Am 
D-single strum
Come death, but likely sooner I'll be alone

                   Em  Am  D-single strum
You moved your temple
                         Em  Am  D-single strum
inside our bones and it's
                           Em  Am  D-single strum
So hard to trust that You

won't move again
Em                                          Am                
C  Am
    For all eternity, You stood with Your Father in perfect unity
Em                                           Am
    And when You walked the earth, You only went where He led
          C            Am
You only spoke what He said
         Em                                Am
So for everything You left, and all of the glory You forfeit
No matter how low You were sent
                   Am                           Em      Am  
C2  C
You still couldn't know what it's like to be alone

                                 Em  Am  C2  C
Disgraced, but You were never alone
                               Em  Am  C2  C
Betrayed, but You were never alone
                            Em    Am  C2  C
Tortured, but still never alone
And nothing is worse than being alone

I have been thinking hard about us trading place
Em                        Am
   Maybe I can wear Your beauty if You put on my shame
Jesus, I've been trying so hard to look like You
That I almost missed the worst of what I put You through
You didn't die for sins, You died covered in them
A prideful, lying thief, gasping out my final breath

Em  Am  D-single strum

                    Em  Am  D-single strum
For that one moment
                         Em  Am  D-single strum
You looked just like me
                      Em  Am  D-single strum
Your Father left you
                           Em   Am  C2  C
And You died completely alone

                   Em  Am  C2  C
For me, You were alone
You couldn't marry so He left You all alone
            Am  C2 C
No better promise    than sympathy
(You conquered death all alone)
                      Am C2 C
'Cause you know the deepest of all our needs

Never again, never alone

Em  Am  C2  C  C2 (x2)
