Alabama Shakes – On Your Way lyrics

On your way to God
Did you think of me?
On your way to Heaven
Did you say I'll see you again?

It wasn't me
Why wasn't it me?

On your way to the promised land
Did you say Oh, she was such a friend?
Then they took you higher and I don't know if I can follow

It wasn't me
Why wasn't it me?

On your way, I said to the air
I don't know if I am strong
So I climed to the mountain
And I don't know what I did wrong.

Cause it was just me
Just lil'ol me
