• sung by Helena Springs - sep. 1979  

You're fighting for existence, you hate me ‘cause I'm pure
You put a hurting on me baby and you make me insecure
But to be strong I must be weak or else I won't endure
I love you, but I love you unaware
And that's more than flesh and blood can bear
More than flesh and blood can bear
I reach for you at midnight just to find you're never there
And its more than flesh and blood can bear

I see you at the party baby, trying to converse
The room is going round and round and now it's in reverse
Don't give into the spirit, 'cause the spirit is adverse
Beware because your feeble mind will tear
And that's more than flesh and blood can bear
More than flesh and blood can bear
Don't discard the lily like the garment that you wear
It's more than flesh and blood can bear

Time regards a pretty face like time regards a fool
You drive off in your Cadillac and leave me with the mule
In order to keep up with you I must go back to school
I see that in the wicked way you stare
And that's more than flesh and blood can bear
More than flesh and blood can bear
Do yourself a favour ‘cause I know you're never there
And its more than flesh and blood can bear

I'm going down to find a church that I can understand
I need new inspiration and I'm only just a man
And with the blackjack table I can't play another hand
The meat you cook for me is bloody rare
It's more than flesh and blood can bear
More than flesh and blood can bear
Take the saddle off your horse and give yourself a chair
More than flesh and blood can bear.
