I said hello I think I'm broken And though I was only joking It took me by surprise when you agreed.
I was trying to be clever For the life of me I never Would have guessed how far the simple truth would lead.
You knew all my lines You knew all my tricks You knew how to heal that pain no medicine can fix
And I bless the day I met you And I thank God that he let you Lay beside me for a moment that lives on And the good news is I'm better for the time we spent together And the bad news is you're gone.
Looking back it's still surprising I was sinking you were rising And with a look you caught me in mid air.
Now I know God has his reasons But sometimes it's hard to see them I lie awake and find that you're not there.
You found hope in hopeless You made crazy sane You became the missing link that helped me break my chains.
And I bless the day I met you And I thank God that he let you Lay beside me for a moment that lives on And the good news is I'm better for the time we spent together And the bad news is you're gone. Umm umm Ohh ohh you're gone Ohhh you're gone!

The third verse of "Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm" by Crash Test Dummies ("they shook and lurched all over the church floor...") was inspired by girl whose parents would speak in tongues at their Pentecostal service.
