(Michael Weston King)

Despite all the years we have not been together
Despite all the things that we haven’t shared
There’s a tie that binds, a seam that can’t be undermined
Yours is the cross that I still bear
Yours is the cross that I still bear

Something from way back, when we were younger
A secret chord we can never let go
No one will have the connection we share
Yours is the cross that I still bear
Yours is the cross that I still bear

Oh, my brother, I want you to see
All the goodness that’s still here in me
Oh, I love you still

Oh, my sister, how I wish I knew
Is there some fight left inside of you?

Before the die is cast
Before we put on our mask
Let’s take one more walk up on Calvary Hill

Despite me leaving you for another
Despite all the miles and miles in between
It’s always there, that fateful prayer
Yours is the cross that I still bear
Yours is the cross that I still bear
