​Cruel Stage

This song is by Graham Parker and appears on the album 12 Haunted Episodes (1995).

Take me for what I'm worth though it may not amount to much
Take me from this abyss and put me back in touch
Though I have strayed from you though I have fallen from grace
I am back on higher ground up from that lonely place

'Cause I have found the going tough and you have suffered long enough
And I am undoin' this cruel stage that I've been going through

These words they come hard I've tried to make them live
I carve them from a humbleness I'm not familiar with
And though I have built a world made out of panes of glass
I won't shatter yours no more with a pain that lasts

And I have found the going tough
But I will find the strength enough
And I am undoin' this cruel stage
That I've been going through

I didn't mean to hurt you
No that's not what I meant
Now I mean to alert you of my true intent

Take me for what I'm worth though it may not amount to much Take me from this abyss and put me back in touch

Repeat 1st chorus
