  • If you feel lonely
    And the world's against you
    Take the long way home
    Past the scary Jesus
    And you'll find my door
    With your name in diamonds
    And you'll feel lonely
    No more

    Help me lord help me Jesus
    Cause I'm lonely and tired
    Help me lord it ain't easy
    Cause I'm living with the blind
    I got no reason to believe in anything

    Help me lord help me Jesus
    Cause I'm hurting inside
    Help me lord it ain't easy
    Cause I'm living a lie
    And god I?m hoping for a reason to be here

    Help me lord help me father
    Cause I'm losing my mind
    Help me lord it's getting harder
    Cause I'm losing all the time
    I got no reason to be living anymore

    Help me lord help me father
    Cause I wasted all my time
    Help me lord it's getting harder
    Cause I made a mess of mine
    And god I'm hoping for the reason to be clear

    So long you pretty thing
    God save your little soul
    The music that you played so hard
    Ain't on your radio

    And all your dreams of diamond rings
    And all that rock n' roll can bring you
    Sail on, So long Publisher: DOMINO PUBLISHING COMPANY
