New Friend Jesus

Album: Clear Heart Full Eyes (2012)
  • Everybody's saying that the lights don't shine
    But the lights shine down on me
    I've got a new friend and my new friend's name is Jesus

    I met him in the parking lot
    He took me in his car
    I've got a new friend and my new friend's name is Jesus

    We rode around all afternoon
    He sold me his guitar
    I've got a new friend and my new friend's name is Jesus

    Now people give me sideways looks
    When we set up on the strand
    But it's hard

    I wish I was with Jesus when I met you
    I wish I was with Jesus when I met you
    I wish I was with Jesus when I met you
    You'd be so impressed with me
    You'd give yourself right up to me

    Everybody's saying that it's way too warm
    But me, I feel a chill
    I've got a new friend and my new friend's name is Jesus

    We drove around all summer long
    We parked behind the bars
    I've got a new friend and my new friend's name is Jesus

    People say we suck at sports
    But they don't understand
    It's hard to catch with holes right through your hands

    I wish I was with Jesus when you loved me
    I wish I was with Jesus when you loved me
    I wish I was with Jesus when you loved me
    I would have been a better me
    That much I can guarantee

    Now I'm on your doorstep and you're asking me to leave
    You say you don't believe I could ever change so quickly
    You say you'll call the cops but even if you do
    I'll just love them all the way that Jesus loves me

    I've got a new friend and my new friend's name is Jesus Writer/s: CRAIG FINN
