Lyrics

Deliverance at Hand!

Lyric sheet from the Deliverance at Hand! booklet.

So many years of fighting off the world
Has left me with scars on my hand
At times I thought I'd die from the wounds I received
But now I wanna make you understand

My bark is worse than my bite
My feelings are out in plain sight
Don't be afraid to touch me
Don't be afraid to love me, baby

You are such a teacher to me; you are so gentle
If I am rough you wilt right away
Or shatter into pieces, and I am left with nothing
I'm learning to be kinder everyday

My bark is worse than my bite
My feelings are out in plain sight
Don't be afraid to touch me
Don't be afraid to love me, baby

But don't get me pissed off
'Cuz I'll bite your pretty head off
And I'll regret the day
I drove your love away
I've always been mean
I wreck each happy scene
And I regret the day
I drove your love away

My bark is worse than my bite
My feelings are out in plain sight
Don't be afraid to touch me
Don't be afraid to love me, baby

Piano version

[...]
My bark is worse than my bite
My feelings are out in plain sight
Don't be afraid to touch me
Don't be afraid to love me
I need to feel some loving
Just like anybody
