Androcles and the Lion - Forgiveness Lyrics

You could call his name
You could wait for the others
You could walk away
But oh how the dead they rise with the morning
But oh how the dead do howl
Through the night
And I want to call his name
And I want to hold his place
You laid down in the garden
You laid down at the gates
You did ask for forgiveness
You cried out in vain
But oh how did your voice did rise with the morning
But oh how the night did cover, your shame
And I want to hold his face
And I want to cover his shame
Peter, don't cry
You know I'll always be around
Peter, don't cry
Would you just wait here for a while
