Will I see him on the tv

Preachin bout the promised land

He tells me to believe in jesus

And steals the money from my hand

Some say he was a good man

But lord I think he sinned, yeah

Twenty-two years of mental tears

Cries a suicidal vietnam vet

Who fought a losing war on a foreign shore

To find his country didnt want him back

Their bullets took his best friend in saigon

Our lawyers took his wife and kids, no regrets

In a time I dont remember

In a war he cant forget

He cried forgive me for what Ive done there

Cause I never meant the things I did

Chorus:

And give me something to believe in

If theres a lord above

And give me something to believe in

Oh, lord arise

My best friend died a lonely man

In some palm springs hotel room

I got the call last christmas eve

And they told me the news

I tried all night not to break down and cry

As the tears rolled down my face

I felt so cold and empty

Like a lost soul out of place

And the mirror, mirror on the wall

Sees my smile it fades again

Chorus

Sometimes I wish to God I didnt know now

The things I didnt know then

Road you gotta take me home

Solo

I drive by the homeless sleeping on a cold dark street

Like bodies in an open grave

Underneath the broken old neon sign

That used to read jesus saves

A mile away live the rich folks

And I see how theyre living it up

While the poor they eat from hand to mouth

The rich is drinkin from a golden cup

And it just makes me wonder

Why so many lose, so few win

Chorus

You take the high road

And Ill take the low road

Sometimes I wish to God I didnt know now

The things I didnt know then

And give me something to believe in

Be the first to like.
