Nirvana – Jesus Doesn't Want Me For A Sunbeam lyrics

Jesus, don't want me for a sunbeam
Sunbeams are never made like me

Don't expect me to cry,
For all the reasons you had to die
Don't ever ask your love of me

Don't expect me to cry
Don't expect me to lie
Don't expect me to die for thee

Jesus, don't want me for a sunbeam
Sunbeams are never made like me

Don't expect me to cry,
For all the reasons you had to die
Don't ever ask your love of me

(x2)
Don't expect me to cry
Don't expect me to lie
Don't expect me to die for thee

Jesus, don't want me for a sunbeam
Sunbeams are never made like me
Don't expect me to cry,
For all the reasons you had to die
Don't ever ask your love of me

Don't expect me to cry
Don't expect me to lie
Don't expect me to die
Don't expect me to cry
Don't expect me to lie
Don't expect me to die for thee

    The writer is feeling unworthy of Christ's love, sacrifice, forgiveness, mercy. He feels by giving himself over to his unworthiness,
    He will not be responsible for his actions, because he's made differently than everybody else. He's condemning himself. Actually, he is crying out for Jesus to save him from himself by using His name throughout the song. He's, in a sense, being his worst self, in order to see if Jesus does love him.

    Jesus don't want me for a sun beam or a beam of light. Sun beams are never made like me never made like me is because they are rays of darkness that is why they are never like me. There not light. Don't expect me to cry or I will never shed a tear. Fell bad cry out loud for help. For all the reasons you had to die. Jesus died for are sins. Don't ever ask your love of me. Or I don't care that you love me or died on the cross for me. Don't expect me to cry or care. Don't expect me to lie. To say I care but don't. Don't expect me to die for thee. If you confess the name of jesus one day you may be kill for it. Jesus died for us and believers will died for him. Kurt gave god the finger and didn't care. That's a shame.
