Trouble In The Empire

 

It's too early to begin this day

The sun ain't even up

It's been this way since the day

That I first felt your love

 

All my life I've walked a lonesome road

To try to control my destiny

I never let another know

Or get too close to me

 

            But now there's trouble in the empire

            I can't walk away this time

            Love's stormin' the gates

            And I don't want to hold the line

            My love is stronger than my fear of letting go

            This time

 

Love is such a mystery

It can take you from behind

And catch you with your heart not lookin'

Now here's your hand in mine

 

            And now there's trouble in the empire

            I can't walk away this time

            Love's stormin' the gates

            And I don't want to hold the line

            My love is stronger than my fear of letting go

            This time      

 

Glory hallelujah...

 

(Repeat Chorus)
