You were too old for me.
Although there was some apprehension, the plan was to wait and see,
what God alone has brought together, well... it must be something, Well, it must be something!

Much too old for me.
Oh the shortness of breathe and the missteps never...
Well, they never really phased me
And all your old stories of war and depression were like...
Well, they were really something.
Were they really something?
Well, they must be something!

Not long ago, but far away
(Away, away, away)
You were the one.
A virgin's only son,
Where did she go wrong?

You could call me what you want to, You know I tried to take your name.
Wanted to make all better, But your past got in front of me.
No, I didn't believe them when they told me all was a lie,
and I'm not listening now when they try to tell me worms make homes in your eyes when you die because...

Everybody needs someone they can pray to.
Everybody needs the one thing that's untouchable.
And I've got you and if anything I know is true,
You ain't going anywhere soon, going anywhere soon, going anywhere soon...

You were too old for me, you know.
And everyone was talking 'bout you while our heads were turned.
Looking into each other's eyes through blood and film.
Well, I could not speak to you.

Now every little thing you ever did wrong was washed all away on the day I was born, And from the day I was born...
Well, it's just what I thought, Well, it's just what I thought!

It's like ages ago and time rages on. (and on, and on, and on).
I could of seen you if I wanted, I knew the number to your room, but I thought it would be so much smarter to just stay in...

I didn't believe them when they told me you lost all your hair,
and I think they're losing it now when they swear you're grabbing at free-floating fish in the air.

Everybody needs someone they can pray to.
Everybody needs their one thing that's untouchable.
So I've got you and I don't give a damn if what they say is the truth, because everybody needs a little thing just like you.

Everybody needs someone they can pray to.
Everybody needs their one thing that's untouchable.
And I've got you and if anything I know is true,
You ain't going anywhere soon, going anywhere soon, going anywhere soon...
