Done some good and I’ve done some bad
Like any man I bet
A man of words is a man of lies, but
Words is all I get
I can’t make you feel safe and sound
They got guns and crosses for that
I can only hang around
Until you realize where it’s at

‘Cause I can’t make it rain
And I can’t make it shine
And I can’t turn this shitstorm we’re in
To some rainbow sunshower of holy red wine

But in the test of our love
In the test of my love
In the test of our love, darling
Yeah, if it’s multiple choice I gotta mark
None of the above but

I said I’d love you forever, come hell or highwater, well babe the flood’s in
Take my hand, fire purges, let rivers wash us clean of our sins
I’ll see you all in white again, we’ll beat the devil, all ill will will be well
I will stand here forever, come on rushing waters, heartbreak and hell

I can’t turn day into night
I can’t turn lead into gold
I’m not even sure I can see the light
To get us off this goddamn dead end road

‘Cause I can’t make it rain
And I can’t make it shine
I could try to erase the past of pain
But honestly, baby, who has that kinda time?

So in the test of our love
When push comes to shove
In the test of our love, darlin’
Yeah, if it’s multiple choice I’m gonna mark
All of the above cause

I said I’d love you forever, come hell or highwater, well babe the flood’s in
Take my hand, fire purges, let rivers wash us clean of our sins
I’ll see you all in white again, we’ll beat the devil, all ill will will be well
I will stand here forever, come on rushing waters, heartbreak and hell

I won’t wipe away the tears you cry
With any tissue of lies
You can build your life on empty promises
Or with a man who promises to try
See ‘cause, I can stand out in the rain
And I can work under the sun
And I can outwait your disdain
Till all this nonsense is done

I said I’d love you forever, come hell or highwater, well babe the flood’s in
Take my hand, fire purges, let rivers wash us clean of our sins
I’ll see you all in white again, we’ll beat the devil, all ill will will be well
I will stand here forever, come on rushing waters, heartbreak and hell
