Lord, I'm Discouraged

Album: Stay Positive (2008)
  • Lord, I'm Discouraged

    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 dieWriter/s: CRAIG FINN, TAD KUBLER
