"At the Bottom" as written by and Beth Hart....
Hold in my breath-not taking a step
the good church has closed its doors on me
God don't like my dirty feet

Burnin' the lawn-everyone's gone
ain't no BBQ going on today
I drink my dinner in the shade

Days and days go by
children laughin'
Still I don't smile at all
Mary's calling to me
“can't you see what I see”
She would never let me down

It's been a long time at the bottom
I spend a lot of time way down there
It's been a long time at the bottom
I don't know how I made it here

Been livin' a lie-my kisses are dry
I got No where else left to run
My love is blind deaf and dumb

Heaven can't wait-to lock up the gate
Tell me that I never could be long
I had my chance but got it wrong

Days and days go by
children laughin'
Still I don't smile at all
Mary's calling to me
“can't you see what I see”
She would never let me down

It's been a long time at the bottom
I spend a lot of time way down there
It's been a long time at the bottom
I don't know how I made it here

Mother Mary stay with me
Don't let me die
You're the only good part left of my trash
God knows I can't change me
I've tried and tried
I never meant to make you cry

It's been a long time at the bottom
I spend a lot of time way down there
It's been a long time at the bottom
I don't know how I made it here
