Lyrics

This time ‘round I’ll be like water
I have learned to let it flow
Oh, there is no need to dam me
I will go where I must go
I’ll drop this suit of armour
Put away my thorny crown
Gonna lay my heart wide open this time ‘round

This time ‘round I’ll be a giver
I have saved me long enough
I will dig down to the bottom
And I’ll fill me right back up
And I’ll end this search for saviour
I’ll be a lost without a found
A pilgrim on life’s highway this time ‘round

Every time I play the game of love I play to win
And it always breaks me open
And I try to fly but fall and crash and burn
That’s how I learn

This time ‘round I’ll be forgiving
I have harmed myself too long
I will speak the words of healing
And it will fill my heart with song
And I’ll sing this song with others
Who were born to make the sound
A ragged choir of angels this time ‘round

As I sail out on the ocean
And I look back on the shore
I can see the sweet perfection
Of the ones I’ve loved before
In each face I see the lesson
That has brought me here and now
They will all give me their blessing this time ‘round

Oh every time we play the game of love
We play to win
And, it always breaks us open and
We try to fly but fall and crash and burn
That’s how we learn to love again
This time ‘round
