• ढ •

i  have  lived  a  life  of  sin
tryin’  hard  just  to  get  by

not  even  god  can  help  me  now
i’m  too  far  gone…   too  far along

innocence
a   faint  whisper
from  long  ago

i  don’t  believe  in  redemption
Jesus  ain’t  gonna  save  my  soul

sometimes  the  guilt  and  the  pain
bring  me  to  my  knees

but  tears  of  repentance
don’t  wash  nothin’  away

can’t  lose  faith  since  i  never  had  any
there’s  no  saving  grace  for  me

the  day  may  soon  come
when  payment
will  be  due in  full

a  pound  of   flesh
or  an  ounce  of  soul

it  won’t  really  matter
’cause
  the  cost’ll  be  higher
than  i  wanna  pay

sing  hallelujah
sing  hallelujah
amen

“Saving Grace”   Everlast

lyrics ~

One time around the block
Two times around the clock
Three times, don’t cross the little lady (lady)

So pretty and, oh, so bold
Got a heart full of gold on a lonely road
She said, “I don’t even think that God can save me” (save me)

(Am I) gainin’ ground
(Am I) losin’ face
(Have I) lost and found my saving grace
Thankful for the gift my angels gave me

Born alone, we die alone
‘n’ I’m just sittin’ here by the phone
Waitin’ for the Lord to send my callin’

Street wise from the boulevard
Jesus only knows that she tries too hard
She’s only tryin’ to keep the sky from fallin’

Any man who says it’s Heaven and Hell
Prob’ly got somethin’ useless to sell
You ask me if I’m saved, but what’s it to ya?

Blow a quarter, cop another eight
You’re runnin’ out of high, you’re losin’ your faith
Throw your hands up and scream, “Hallelujah”

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Amen

One time around the sun
Another year older and my work ain’t done
It’s time for me to write the final chapter (chapter)

Deal the cards and roll the dice
Sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll are my only vice
Tryin’ to figure out just what’s here after (here after)

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Amen

  1. what a hard life it would be not to have grace…i like the honesty in this though as it def conveys the feeling…what a burden it would be to carry all our failings…

    happy new year dani…
    smiles.

  2. Pretty tough. Like giving up or something. Sobering and at the same time a damn good reason to get just the opposite get really drunk. Justification to do just whatever you want because it doesn’t matter anyway? Hmmm To believe or not, there is really no way to know, either way what if I’m wrong. Is it worth the risk?

  3. Good to see you back again dani ♥
