A little Catholic girl who's fallen in love
A face on a page, a gift from above
She should have known better than to give her heart
She should have know better than to ever part

Without me
Without me

I gave her everything that I ever owned
I think she understood but she never spoke
She shouldn't ought to try to be that way
She shouldn't have to go there ever again

Without me
Without me

Now listen to us good and listen well
Listen to us all and everything we tell
We should have known better than to give her away
We should have know better to this very day

Without me
Without me

Now listen Joan of Arc
All you have to do
Is say the right words and I'll be coming through
Hold you in my arms and take you right away

Now she's on her way to another land
We never understood why she gave her hand
She shouldn't ought to promise because it's just pretend
I know she doesn't mean it and she'll leave again

Without me
Without me
Without me
Without me

See these arms that were broken
How they held you so
Never once did they fail you
They won't let you go

We're just waiting looking skyward
As the days come down
Someone promised there'd be answers
If we stayed around

Over decades, now this romance
Has sustained us all
Never questioned only giving
What it made us for
