"Play Like God" as written by and Gary Anthony James Webb....
I was young
I was cold but not insane
I had one good friend
It was a voice without a name
And so here we are
Same need and same mistake
But it could be yours
You see it could be even be yours

I said I've done things
That left me hurt and ashamed
She said all I need
Is a place to hide the pain
She said don't trust dreams
Because dreams will break your heart
I said little girls play in the house of shame
Some of us play like God

Play like God,
Save my soul
Play like God
I know that God don't live here in my heart

She said touch my soul
I've never touched someone so cold
She said touch my heart
I've never touched something so old
She said play like God
And then you can play with me
I moved underground
And caught the isolation blues
Sound familiar?

I said kiss my face
I've seen things you'll never see
She said kiss my arse
I've been everything I need
She said memories
Are only there to make you bleed
I said little girls play in big boys games
Some of us play but cry

Play like God
Save my soul
Play like God
I know that God don't live here in my world

Where do we belong?
She said I've been sick
But then no-one's clean for long
She said pray for me
Like God, I've fucked the world
I said little girls play with the big disease
Some of us play with you

    General CommentI thought it was 'little girls playing big boys games.' That's just the way I hear it though, I am very frequently wrong about this sort of thing. Isn't the guitar part cheesy in this song? Still, Gary's made worse songs than this. I think it's quite good, in a quirky sort of way. I think it's about a relationship but I've got no idea what he's actually trying to say with this song.
