"White Palms" as written by and Peter B./been Hayes....
Jesus, when you coming back
Jesus never coming back
Jesus won't take me back
Jesus never coming home

Jesus seemed to steal my soul
He'll never let me go
Jesus gonna make me pay
Never should have run away

I want to go home

Jesus when you go will you come back
Jesus when you go will you come back
Jesus I dare you to come back
Jesus when you go will you come back home

Never seems to climb inside
Walk in through my open eyes
Never shoulda ever shown
And he's all I've ever known

Jesus, when you coming back
He's never coming back
You'll never take me back
We're never going home

I want to go home

Jesus when you go will you come back
Jesus when you go will you come back
Jesus I dare you to come back
Jesus I dare you to come back home

Jesus, when you coming back
Jesus never coming back
Jesus won't take me back
Jesus never coming home

Jesus seemed to steal my soul
He'll never let me go
Jesus gonna make me pay
Never should have run away

I want to go home

Jesus when you go will you come back
Jesus I dare you to come back
Jesus I beg you to come back
Jesus when you go will you come back home

I wouldn't come back if I'd have been Jesus
I'm the kinda guy who leaves the scene of the crime

I wouldn't come back if I'd have been Jesus
I'm the kinda guy who leaves the scene of the crime

I wouldn't come back if I'd have been Jesus
I'm the

    General CommentThe songs rythm makes me think of summer. The lyrics make me think of Jesus. I guess.

    General CommentSounds very similiar to The Verve's Butterfly, more in the bass line than anything. But overall, "Jesus" is given a drug-dealing like personae in the lyrics, like the lamentation is craving the next fix. Brilliant band and songs!

    General CommentYeah id agree with Heethan about the drug dealer connection. Using Jesus as a metaphor he is using a person who has the power to cure disease and relieve pain. Just like a drug dealer to a junkie.
