Jesse Malin – God's Lonely People lyrics

Over mounts over money over time
Newspaper lovers break up on Page 6
Bust stop single mothers
Dream of getting rich
Hollywood sons and daughters
The teenage Jesus scars
They took her to see a doctor
Now she's gonna be a star

Don't it always go that way?
Don't it always go that way sweet child?
God's lonely people
Get it on when summers gone
Eye of the needle
The weekend comes with the damage done

A thousand dollars later in a last chance poker game
He said a prayer for his children
But the angel never came

Don't it always go that way?

God's lonely people
Long lost love we're dreaming of
Powers of evil
Feeling dumb and American

Where we stand
They killed a man
I almost saw it on tv
But they washed it clean so that kids could dream

God's lonely people
Pay to come like everyone
Eye of the needle
The king is dead it's all be said

I am the one that wants to go back
I wan the unconditional

    Hi Elston, I am 30 years old and more or less feel the same way. When I read your comment I just wanted to say something to you, our God does not relish instilling fear or enjoys punishing people. He's merciful and is the embodiment of loving kindness. He's all I've got in a world where people everywhere, be it family, loved ones or friends have let me down repeatedly for years.
    I wish I could talk to you and show you how he came through to me. Much love in Christ, Noa.
