I'm so lonely God won't know me
I can hardly get up
I sold my halo back in April
Now I can't hold my head up

So ring out the bell
I'll fly where there's someone to tell
My shoulders are colder since I fell

Someone see me feel me breathing
Someone get me home soon
If I see sunrise and screw up my eyes
I don't feel so lonesome

So ring out the bell
I'll fly where there's someone to tell
My shoulders are colder since I fell

I'm doing fine, I'm getting by
Tell me what I should do
God knows why I'm watching the sky
Getting so blue

One fine morning without warning
I'll go through the blue sky
Until I do I'll wait for you
So I can get this right

So ring out the bell
I'll fly where there's someone to tell
My shoulders are colder since I fell

So ring out the bell
I'll fly where there's someone to tell
My shoulders are colder since I fell

    General Commentthe line "God won't know me" i think is a reference to Jesus' parables where he says "in those days you will come to me and i will say 'go from me for i never knew you!'"
    i think the speaker is expressing this as a fear that makes him sad. but i think the truth of the matter is that Jesus said "the meek shall inherit the earth" and that proves that God loves sad people and when you are sad God is reaching out to you!!!!

    this is a great song about anticipating death and stuff

    General Commenti just think it's about a guy who was in love with a girl and the relationship ended for some reasons. he fell, out of love, and ever since, he's had colder shoulders which means that he's been ignoring more and more people. he's just looking for someone to save him and he wants her to ring out the bell so he'll know that she's there. that's how i hear it at least
