DRAG ME AWAY
Melissa Etheridge


Did you think that I was leaving?
My ticket was just one way
The angels I believed in
Were gonna carry me away
Did you think that I would simply
Give them my last breath?
Well, honey, you've got me wrong
I'd never leave you for death

It's gonna take more than that
To get rid of me
It's gonna take more than that
To make me fade
Oh... they'll have to tie me up
And drag me away
They'll have to shut my mouth
And drag me away
Hey, hey

There is no one I serve
And I am not here to please
I will not be a hostage
To my own disease

Oh... come on, come on
Come on, come on and hold me
Out into the great sunlight
No power on Earth can stop us
We both become one tonight

I've never been more
Sure of anything
I've never been more
Sure of what I am
They'll have to tie me up
And drag me away
They'll have to shut my mouth
And drag me away

There's no dark
That can overcome a flame
There's no force
That can drag me away

Oh, oh
Drag me away
Oh, oh, oh, oh
They'll never drag me away

They could bring an army
Ten thousand men or more
Their mass weapons of destruction
Won't even up the score

Come on, come on, come on
Come on, come on, baby
They'll have to drag me away
Come on, come on
Come on, come on, baby
They'll have to drag me away
They'll have to drag me away
They'll have to drag me away
Hey... hey...

They'll have to tie me up
And drag me away, hey
Oh, they'll have to shut my mouth
And drag me away

Oh... no dark
That can overcome a flame
And no force
That can drag me away

There's no dark
That can overcome a flame
There's no force
That can drag me away
