Lloyd Cole – Jesus Said lyrics

Jesus said to mary: lord the things we do for love
Well do you think I seem selfconcious,
Its only you I'm thinking of.
I was hiding in the bathroom quite unable to cry.
Now I'm weeping with a vengeance
Since your voice came down the line.

And I move up from the country,
Oh I never could have stayed.
I just dipped my hand in the water
And got carried away.

Oh would you put me down
Just for being around
At the wrong time all day
Or would you leave while I'm sleeping
Out through the fire escape
They tell me swans do fly
Across the perfect sky
And it's the purest sky tonight
So you desert me in the morning,
Kind of your cruelty and spice
And I move up from the country to wave a goodbye to old anne
And I just let her on that riverboat and I never will look back

Jesus said to mary: look at the things we do for love
Well do you think he was selfconcious,
It was only her he was thinking of.
I was hiding in the bathroom quite unable to cry.
Now I'm weeping with a vengeance
These are tears of joy oh my

And I move up from the country,
Oh I never could have stayed.
I just dipped my hand in the water
And got carried away.
