Will Butler – Son Of God lyrics

[Verse 1]
I've been here forever in the cold
Waiting in the weather while you
Go out searching for our gold
But nothing lasts forever I've been told
Nothing lasts forever, oh
But some of this shit's gettin' pretty old

Oh oh oh, it's the Son Of God
Come down and tell me, water to my face now [?]
Oh oh oh, it's the Son Of God
Ridin' down from [?]
Oh oh oh, and I'll be good, I'll be good
I swear I'll be good

[Verse 2]
But still you don't believe me
As if I would be lyin', as if I was suspect
As if I was not crying, as if I was not forgiven
For my sins, as if the mirror's broken
And I would get no chance on that side again


Softly and so sweetly, whisper near
Softly and so sweetly, because you never know when it's gon' off with you
Well, if you're gonna shake me, say my name
And if you're gonna blame, well then, lay the blame
Lay the blame
