"God Knows My Name" as written by and Peder/brobacke Akerman....
I'm very silent

[silence]

I'm very silent, got my back to the wall
I keep my mouth shut, hardly breathing at all
The biggest officer that you've ever seen
Mean as the devil and he's looking for me

Oh
God knows my name
Papa always told me that, oh
God knows my name

My friends and I, we had a little fun
Ain't much to it, still I'm on the run
The biggest officer that you've ever seen
Yes, I can tell you, now he's looking for me

Oh
God knows my name
Papa always told me that, oh
God knows my name

I got some friends and we were fooling around
I got some friends that I don't wanna let down
Hey look at me, I know I've done wrong
Now can I push it just a little more
Now can I push it just a little bit more

I keep silent with my back to the wall
I keep my mouth shut, hardly breathing at all
Out there someone's wondering where I might be
There's many of them, but they won't catch me

Oh
God knows my name
Papa always told me that, oh
God knows my name
Papa always told me that, oh
God knows my name
