Today I will atone for sins committed as a kid
Don't remember asking "take me with you" but you did
There's the postman and your best friend and the driver of the hearse
You are off to heaven and I'm the seven-hundred-fifty-first

one to hear

A series of distractions and a building is a shell
Life goes up in smoke and preachers say that there's a hell
I know what the facts are but sometimes it makes me blue
You are bones and ashes and I was never anything to you

So what is it now makes you dear
And where am I now that my love is a lie

How do I get by
But I do, and I do, and I do

And so I stay the course never sure but sometimes steady
Preachers say that there's a hell when life is tough enough already
So today I will atone for sins committed as a kid
Don't remember asking to come with you but I'm pretty sure I did

Or is it me who is keeping you here
And where am I now that my love is a lie

How do I get by
But I do, and I do, and I do
