Scapegoat: A Love Song

Standard

To the tune of Titanium (by David Guetta)

Inspired by the example of Jesus.

[Verse 1]
I may have flaws, but not the ones you’re calling out
You’re talking lots, not saying much
I’m criticized, so you can cover up your pain
You tear me down, I don’t fight back

[Pre-Chorus]
Protect yourself, shifting the blame
Lie away, Lie away
I’m sacrificed, to take your shame
Lie away, Lie away

[Chorus]
You tear me down, I love you still
I am your Scapegoat
You tear me down, I love you still
I am your Scapegoat

[Bass]

[Verse 2]
Cut me down, but yours the sin you truly hate
Lost hope and broken love
Raise your hand, be the one to cast that stone
You’re talking lots, not saying much

[Pre-Chorus]
Protect yourself, shifting the blame
Lie away, Lie away
I’m sacrificed, to take your shame
Lie away, Lie away

[Chorus]
You tear me down, I love you still
I am your Scapegoat
You tear me down, I love you still
I am your Scapegoat
I am your Scapegoat
I am your Scapegoat

[Base]

[Bridge]
Wood cross, thorn crown
Borne by the one who loves
Wood cross, as nails rain down

[Chorus]
You tear me down, I love you still
I am your Scapegoat
You tear me down, I love you still
I am your Scapegoat
You tear me down, I love you still
I am your Scapegoat
You tear me down, I love you still
I am your Scapegoat
I am your Scapegoat
