Hillheader Lyr Req: I need to find a song for a funeral (24) Lyr Add: ONE DAY WHEN GOD BEGS MY FORGIVENESS 27 Nov 05


One day when God begs my forgiveness
I'll say Yeah, you screwed up, but at least there was the rock n'roll,
I lost my cherry to Strawberry Fields Forever,
I fell in love to Rubber Soul.

One day when God says he wishes things had been different
I'll say Mmm, me too, but how 'bout those days we drove the car into the hills?
And the view from the very top of Twmbarllwm…..
You could hear the wind in the pines if you sat real still.

One day when God says That's another fine mess I got you into,
I'll say Amen Lord, you really don't say,
But thanks I guess for any good times I've forgotten,
It's the shit you never forget, ain't it always the way?

One day when God don't even recognise his own footprints
And the leaves of Eden drip with pesticide
I'll still owe him one for that summer I worked the Waltzer….
All the prettiest girls got free rides…..

One day when God says he can no longer stand to bear witness
And he's saving the last round in the chamber for Himself
I'll be parked on some slip-road, drunk and nostalgic
For the roads I took when I still cared where I was going....
