Lord, I'm discouraged The circles have sucked in her eyes Lord, I'm discouraged Her new friends have shadowed her life Lord, I'm discouraged She ain't come out dancing for some time
And I'm trying to light candles But they burn down to nothing And she keeps coming up with Excuses and half-truths and fortified wine Excuses and half-truths and fortified wine Excuses and half-truths and fortified wine There's a house on the south side Where she stays in for days at a time
I know I'm no angel I ain't been bad that way Can't you hear her? She's that sweet missing songbird When the choir sings on Sundays And I'm almost busted But I bought back the jewelery she sold
And I come to your altar And then there's just nothing And she keeps insisting The sutures and bruises are none of my business She says that she's sick But she won't get specific The sutures and bruises are none of my business This guy from the north side Comes down to visits His visits, they only take five or six minutes
Lord, I'm sorry to question your wisdom But my faith has been wavering Won't you show me a sign, And let me know that you're listening?
Excuses and half-truths and fortified wine Excuses and half-truths and fortified wine Excuses and half-truths and fortified wine I know it's unlikely she'll ever be mine So I mostly just pray she don't die
