I asked my father
I said, "Father change my name"
The one I'm using now it's covered up
With fear and filth and cowardice and shame

[Chorus: x2]
Yes and lover, lover, lover
Lover, lover, lover, lover
Come back to me

He said, "I locked you in this body
I meant it as a kind of trial
You can use it for a weapon
Or to make some woman smile"

[Chorus: x2]

"Then let me start again," I cried
"Please let me start again
I want a face that's fair this time
I want a spirit that is calm"

[Chorus: x2]

"I never, never turned aside," he said
"I never walked away
It was you who built the temple
it was you who covered up my face"

[Chorus: x2]

And may the spirit of this song
May it rise up pure and free
May it be a shield for you
A shield against the enemy

[Chorus: x2]
