lyrics

God Kills Someone Every Day
I've got a hole in my gut, a scar on my breast,
A rip in my heart, a flat in my tyre
Lord, what did I do to disrespect you?
Make you so mad, bring down your ire?
I've kept myself alive to the tune of the hive
Kept my nose completely to the grind
But now my days are reeling, because I’ve got this feeling
That my faith is about to rewind

(CHORUS)
Well I hear my conscience say
You got it good,
So what if you hurt?
Oh, so you should
Nothing's so sweet it can't be swept away
Don’t you know God kills someone every day?

There was no way around the heartache highway
No exit ramps to be found
Just miles and miles of solo driving
Till I got to lonely town.
I heard there was a place of honour and respect
Where men make love to women, but I haven’t been there yet
I’ll be the first to buy a ticket if it came on the internet.

(Harmonica solo)

Then I felt His hand upon my shoulder
I knew, yes I knew I was old, getting older
There’s truckers to whom I must give way
Pull over, take the exit off the cosmic highway.

You didn’t come to see me Angel Gabe
But I gave birth to Jesus anyway
I still take it personal, though I hear the angels say
You know God kills someone everyday?

(CHORUS)
Well I hear my conscience say
You got it good,
So what if you hurt?
Oh, so you should
Nothing's so sweet it can't be swept away
Don’t you know God kills someone every day?
