Sheryl Crow – God Bless This Mess lyrics

Daddy's in the hallway
Hanging pictures on the wall
Mama's in the kitchen
Making casseroles for all

My brother came home yesterday
From somewhere far away
He doesn't look like I remember
As he stares off into space
He must've seen some ugly things out there
He just can't seem to say


God bless this mess
God bless this mess
God bless this mess

Got a job in town
Selling insurance on the phone
With Robert and Teresa
And two con men from back home
But Everyone I call up doesn't have the time to chat
Everybody is so busy doing this and doing that
But Something has gone missing
And it makes me kinda sad, oh

God bless this mess
God bless this mess
God bless this mess

Heard about the day
That two skyscrapers came down
Firemen, policemen
People came from all around
The smoke covered the city
And the body count did rise
And The president spoke words of comfort
With tear drops in his eyes
Then he led us as a nation
Into a war based on lies, oh

God bless this mess
God bless this mess
God bless this mess
