One day when God begs my forgiveness
I'll say, "Yeah, you screwed up, but at least there was the rock n' roll,
I lost my cherry to 'Strawberry Fields Forever',
I fell in love to Rubber Soul"

One day when God says he wishes things had been different
I'll say "Mmm, me too, but how 'bout those days we drove the car into the hills?
And the view from the very top of Twmbarlwm
You could hear the wind in the pines if you sat real still"

One day when God says, "That's another fine mess I got you into"
I'll say, "Amen Lord, you really don't say,
But thanks, I guess, for any good times I've forgotten,
It's the shit you never forget, ain't it always the way?"

One day when God don't even recognize his own footprints
And the leaves of Eden drip with pesticide
I'll still owe him one for that summer I worked the Waltzer
All the prettiest girls got free rides

One day when God says he can no longer stand to bear witness
And he's saving the last round in the chamber for Himself
I'll be parked on some slip-road, drunk and nostalgic
For the roads I took when I still cared where I was going
