lyrics

I’ll love you girl
‘Till the old end of time
And after I cross that line
Look for me for a year
Through seance or through tears
And I will do my best
Without word or this armored mess
To touch your heart so blessed.

Chorus:
I know you’re not God babe
I know you’re not God babe
I know you’re not God babe
But I think you might be closer to him

And after you fall
Where do you go from there?
Get up off your knees and share
And you don’t have to pray
If everything’s ok
And if you’re wounds are dear
Then I’ll wake up with your tears
Let them fill up every year

Chorus

Where is my heart of steel?
What have you done to it?
You’re powers are not yours to give
But they light this room somehow
And this old world of mine
Little Gods and little time
And I always call you mine

Chorus
