lifeblood: songs: lyrics: god in heaven


yeah yeah yeah

huh

a man came over the other night
he said "there's something in my world that's not working right
now i've done everything i can think of
but none of it seems to keep me from
drinking
now there's a battle in my head
every day when i get up out of bed
and if you want me to i'll go away
and if you let me i will stay
i'll stay
come on
if there's a god up in heaven oh no
if there's a god up in heaven oh no
if i could understand
if i could see his plan
if there's a god up in heaven oh no
well i've been to church and i've been to school
i've read all the books and i'm still a fool
if there's a god in heaven
a god in heaven
come on now let's go"

he uh held my breath as he held my hand
he said "woman do you know what it's like to be a man?
and i keep trying to make my life better
oh i keep pushing and pushing and pushing..."
i said "the battle's in your head
no matter what you wind up dead
and if you want to you can go away
and if you need to you can stay"
come on stay
(unknown)

oh

if there's a god up in heaven
well i want to know
if there's a god up in heaven
why can't we go
if there's a god up in heaven
what are we doing here
if there's a god up in heaven
a god up in heaven
then why do we have fear
if there's a god up in heaven
i want to see the light
god up in heaven
