Knocked Out

KNOCKED OUT

V1:

I heard the news and it scared me – I had to run for cover , run for shelter
I was the news and it bared me – I had to run for cover in another –
“Pull down the blinds and lock the doors – I wont have to hear this any more
I’ve had the Wind knocked out before  – I cannot fight this kind of war”

CHORUS:
I got the wind knocked out it’s not coming back
I am shutting down I am fearful now
I got the wind knocked out – and its not coming back

V2
I was asleep and it spared me – I could hide under cover – under shelter
Being asleep never dared me to come out from the cover – from the shelter
but pull down the sheets – you can see the scars –
i don’t have the strength i had before
who you are can be ignored when they see the handmaid and not the sword…

CHORUS:
I got the wind knocked out it’s not coming back
I am shutting down –  I am fearful now
I got the wind knocked out – and its not coming back

V3

Baby, Baby, Baby, Baby – > trained me so that little fazed me
Filled the barn but nearly razed me-  yet covered me with Grace
Opened my eyes, unlocked the door. Life has a way of keeping score
Mortality cant be ignored.
But you can choose the coma or you can choose the war…

BRIDGE:

Shout it from a Mountain top – i will…
This is not the time to lay low, be silent or be still
Shout it from a microphone:  “Flesh and bone must ride this storm”
Shout it from the Mountaintop: I will

CHORUS2:
I got the wind knocked out but a Storm came back
I am not shutting down – I’m stronger now – It fills my lungs so i can shout:
I got the wind knocked out , but a Storm came back ——
