He believed if you had a little faith
You could stop the rain
And he believed if you got a little love
It would ease the pain
But still he's suffering

Searching for the face of Jesus
Looking for the light we need
Searching for the face of Jesus
Painted in the blood we bleed

By the side of a giant swimming-pool
With a mystic book
Hanging out with the guys and playing the fool
Fat as King Farouk
But look he's suffering

Searching for the face of Jesus
Downtown Memphis, Tennessee
Searching for the face of Jesus
Science is a mystery

Oh and sometimes there's a close shave
They come, they go
Keeps the flowers fresh at his mom's grave
And talks to her as though...

Searching for the face of Jesus
Looking for the light we need
Searching for the face of Jesus
Painted in the blood we bleed

Searching for the face of Jesus
Downtown Memphis, Tennessee
Searching for the face of Jesus
Science is a mystery
