Godspeed, Godspeed
Forgive a sweet soul a desperate deed
His was a prison and he was freed
Godspeed, Godspeed

God bless, God bless
What's born out of sorrow or out of distress
Speculation is anyone's guess
God bless, God bless

God only knows what takes a petal from the rose
What makes the dark rivers overflow
What makes a lifetime come and go

But God damn, God damn
You put your hand in the hand of the man
Must have believed he would understand
Forgive a sweet soul a desperate deed
Godspeed, Godspeed

God only knows what takes a petal from the rose
What makes the dark rivers overflow
What makes a lifetime come and go

God damn, God damn
You put your hand in the hand of the man
Must have believed he would understand
Forgive a sweet soul a desperate deed
Godspeed, Godspeed
Godspeed

    General Commenta beautiful song and excellently done by Shaye, but you have to hear Ron Hynes to hear the true beauty of it
