"Bloodline" as written by and Matthew Morris....
She was a girl living in the city cleaning the old religion
Praying for electricity to keep her warm for a little while
Nobody made her wise to the things a girl might find
In a belly of a hungry man who don't care nothing about his bloodline
She got lost in his bloodline
Heavy cost of a bloodline
She goes on she cries at night and keeps alive his bloodline
So much riding on a bloodline
Why is he hiding from the bloodline?
It ain't right she cries at night and keeps alive his bloodline

She heard heaven is invite only preserved for Christian soldiers
Not on wet girls living in the city asking for change from strangers
But father said Jesus loves her even though she never married
God loves her more than the Christians did she's part of his holy bloodline
She got saved in her bloodline
The price he paid for the bloodline
Chased alive she cries at night and keeps alive his bloodline
She believes in his bloodline
Lives and breathes by the bloodline
With all her might she cries at night and keeps alive his bloodline

Ohhhhhhhhhh oooooooooooo
I know I should have never left her a shoulder of a burnt eye
She probably won't forgive me god might not even
I made a cross and laid it on her back
But I never broke her spirit and she owes that to her bloodline
She stood strong for the bloodline I did wrong by the bloodline
But she went on she cried at night and kept alive her bloodline
Sacrifice for the bloodline paid the price for the bloodline
For all her life she cried at night and kept alive her bloodline

Ohhhhhhhhhh she cried at night and kept alive her bloodline ooooooooooooo

    General CommentI'm surprised nobody has commented on this song yet. The song tells the story of a woman and her children that were abandoned by a man. One of the lines that gets to me every time is when he says "God loves her more than the Christians do" and how much that rings true in the world we live in. Matt, with this song and his others, proves he is a great songwriter and storyteller by creating the imagery and that strong connection between what is in the song and the listener.

    General CommentWow! Beautiful song! Weird, indeed, that no-one has commented yet..
    Matt brings it with so much feeling! Love the way his voice goes up in the chorus!
    And I agree with you, yepenam, about the meaning. Beautiful, but sad song!
