Please

So you never knew love
Until you crossed the line of grace.
And you never felt wanted
Till you'd someone slap your face.
So you never felt alive
Until you'd almost wasted away.
 
You had to win, you couldn't just pass
The smartest ass at the top of the class
Your flying colours, your family tree
And all your lessons in history.
 
Please, please, please
Get up off your knees.
Please, please, please, please, oh yeah.
 
So you never knew how low you'd stoop
To make that call
And you never knew what was on the ground
Till they made you crawl.
So you never knew
That the heaven you keep
You stole.
 
Your Catholic blues, your convent shoes,
Your stick-on tattoos, now they're making the news
Your holy war, your Northern star
Your sermon on the mount from the boot of your car.
 
Please, please, please
Get up off your knees.
Please, please, please
Leave me out of this, please.
 
So love is hard
And love is tough
But love is not
What you're thinking of.
 
September, streets capsizing
Spilling over down the drains
Shard of glass, splinters like rain
But you could only feel your own pain
 
October, talk getting nowhere.
November, December
Remember, we just started again.
 
Please, please, please
Get up off your knees, yeah.
Please, please, please, please, ah.
 
So love is big
Is bigger than us.
But love is not
What you're thinking of.
It's what lovers deal
It's what lovers steal
You know I've found it
Hard to receive
'Cause you, my love
I could never believe.

The following was changed:
- 4th stanza, line 1: 'And you never knew how low you'd stoop' > 'So you never knew (...)'
- 4th stanza was given an extra line after I rearranged its last two verses
- 9th stanza, line 3: rearranged the last two verses
