The Embrace

Words by Joseph Lewczak
Music by Richie Leone and Joseph Lewczak

1.     I was warned, but ignored it all, didn't care for truth
There’s just so much, you can do, once you’ve been seduced
It started small, a fleeting touch, but couldn’t get enough
Tried to resist,  you wouldn’t stop, kept falling into love

CHORUS:

And so I fell, into your embrace
Take away it all, my fears erased 
And then I fall into your embrace

LAST TIME:  And here I am, without a trace
And so I fell, into your embrace
Take away it all, my fears erased
And then I fall into your embrace

Try to change my life, try to recreate
The Embrace 

LAST TIME. Try to change my life, but I can't escape 
The Embrace 

2.     This feeling grew, with further doubts, I swallowed down regret
I tried to run, you pulled me back, not making me forget
I’d come to you, broken down, leave thinking I was changed
The addict begged, you always came, nowhere lays the blame  

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE:

I have these bottles filled with you
Forever chained, by your abuse
Handcuffed here, with sweet despair
I can’t recover, and I just don’t care

REPEAT CHORUS

And still I fell . . . 

3.    And here I am, just slightly worse, still trying to begin
The sharpest knife, cuts through my soul, and I run to you again
I feel it lift, the pain the doubt, whenever you’re around
Is it being with you, or being without, that’s causing me to drown

REPEAT CHORUS

I’ll always fall . . .
