It Seemed the Better Way

Album: You Want It Darker (2016)
  • Seemed the better way
    When first I heard him speak
    Now it’s much too late
    To turn the other cheek

    Sounded like the truth
    Seemed the better way
    Sounded like the truth
    But it’s not the truth today

    I wonder what it was
    I wonder what it meant
    First he touched on love
    Then he touched on death

    Sounded like the truth
    Seemed the better way
    Sounded like the truth
    But it’s not the truth today

    I better hold my tongue
    I better take my place
    Lift this glass of blood
    Try to say the grace

    Seemed the better way
    When first I heard him speak
    But now it’s much too late
    To turn the other cheek

    Sounded like the truth
    Seemed the better way
    Sounded like the truth
    But it’s not the truth today

    I better hold my tongue
    I better take my place
    Lift this glass of blood
    Try to say the grace
