Civil War

Album: The Good Parts (2017)
  • If I ever get to Heaven, gonna walk up to his desk and say
    "Got a couple questions
    Wonder whether you can answer me
    You put everything together
    Yeah, you made me just the way I am
    If you're a lover that can tell me, then please help me understand"

    Why you put good into my heart
    Then tease me with evil since the day I was born?
    Guilty and confused, I ripped myself apart
    When you always knew I'd be a civil war
    That I'd be a civil war, that I'd be a civil war
    What'd you make me that way for?
    That I'd be a civil war

    Now I've been living with my demons
    They've been eating at me every day
    I like change 'round my neck
    Most nights I get the best of me
    And I'm ashamed, I'm amazed, I'm afraid of the wicked I need
    And I'm sure there's silver ling, and I'm trying, but I cannot see

    Why you put good into my heart
    Then tease me with evil since the day I was born?
    Guilty and confused, I ripped myself apart
    When you always knew I'd be a civil war
    That I'd be a civil war, that I'd be a civil war
    Now, what'd you make me that way for?
    I'd be a civil war

    'Cause damn it, I'm tired and I wanna change
    But you put it right into my DNA
    So just for one evening, I curse your name
    And ask why the hell do You do this to me?

    Why would you put, why would you put
    good into my heart
    Then tease me with evil since the day I was born?
    Guilty and confused, I ripped myself apart
    When you always knew I'd be a civil war
    That I'd be a civil war, that I'd be a civil war
    Now, what'd you make me that way for?
    I'd be a civil war Writer/s: Andrew Charles Grammer
