All I Know Song Lyrics
(he kneels next to her)
All that I've seen
All the battles, all that I've done
Never seeing the truth
Until that morning and the light of the sun
And now I'm here with you
Learning how it feels to feel scared of the feelings I've found
In all my life this is the first time I've cared
These bloodied hands, their scars of war
I've never fought for love before
(he takes her hand and Bertrande reaches out to him)
And all I know is that all I want to say, I've never said before
And all I ask, is you tell me every word you have to say
All I need is the time to know that this is real and let it grow
And all I see is a man who finds he's brave enough to stay
And all I know is the touch of love that changes all I know
All the years I prayed for this day
Now at last, all I've wanted to say!
And all the pain that we've known turns to dust
Blown by the wind
And all I know is that love like this is love that never lies!
And all I need is the time to know that this is real and let it grow..
(they take hands and embrace)
And all I see is that all I'll ever love is in your eyes
And all I know is the touch of love that changes all I know!
(they kiss each other and leave the stage with their arms around each other)
(the Protestants enter)
I am frightened, André, that they'll here us tonight
It's so quiet, are we taking too much of a risk.
If we turn from the Lord, we lose all we believe
We must all be prepared to die for our faith
But how long can we hide?
Must be always pretend?
Catholic by day, Protestant by night
André But our faith will survive
And the day will arrive
When our prayers will be heard
And the bloodshed will end
(Bertrande and Arnaud enter)
All the years that I've fought, I could never feel love
All the tears that I've wept, all those years that I prayed
But between you and I, there can never be lies
Just the truth now I swear, on the love that we made
But there's one truth to tell that you must know tonight
I'm a Protestant now, in these Catholic lands
I have no right to judge
You must follow your faith
And you speak to a man who has blood on his hands
And perhaps it's too late for this soldier to pray
Only you can decide what prayers to say
I ask nothing of you, as long as you stay
But it's never too late for a soldier to pray....
