​Protection

This song is by Lucinda Williams and appears on the album Down Where The Spirit Meets The Bone (2014).

Well I've seen some things in life as God is my witness
I've cried and cried and nobody could help
Now I'm traveling through the world with dedication
What I do I did it all by my own sweet self

I need protection from the enemy of love
I need protection from the enemy of righteousness
I need protection from the enemy of good
I need protection from the enemy of kindness
Give me protection from the enemy of love

I came into the world all alone
Pushin' and strugglin' to find a home
I tell you what child go ahead and repeat it
It was my own trial made me stand on my own two feet

I need protection from the enemy of love
I need protection from the enemy of righteousness
I need protection from the enemy of good
I need protection from the enemy of kindness

Give me protection from the enemy of love
You know people be grinnin' and talkin' about me
Make me throw up my hands and call out cryin'
But the world's gonna spin with or without me
So I still get up and I keep on tryin'

Livin' in a world full of endless troubles
Livin' in a world where darkness doubles
But my burden is lifted when I stand up
And use the gift I was given for not givin' up

I need protection from the enemy of love
I need protection from the enemy of rock' 'n' roll
I need protection from the enemy of good
I need protection from the enemy of soul
Give me protection from the enemy of love
I need protection from the enemy of good
I need protection
Give me protection
I need protection
Give me protection
Yeah I need protection
Give me protection
I need protection
Give me protection - Yeah
