"Child of God" as written by and Arthur Herzog Jr. Billie Holiday....
I did the best I could do
Or the best I could tell
The higher I flew, the farther I fell

Born in the mud,
Raised in the wild
Washed in the blood,
God's Problem Child

I feel the shine, following me
Not far behind, that's where I wanna be
A little out of town, fine by me

Darkness may fall
We still got a light
Keeping us all
Safe through the night

Heaven must love
God's problem child
Heaven must love
God's problem child
Heaven must love
God's problem child

    General CommentOriginally written and performed by Millie Jackson. I love Antony's version though, he really got to the core of the song.
