  • In my home town for anyone who sticks around
    You're either lost or you're found
    There's not much in between
    In my home town everything's still black and white
    It's a long long way from wrong to right
    From Sunday morning to Saturday night

    Everybody just wants to get high
    Sit and watch a perfect world go by
    We're all looking for love and meaning in our lives
    We follow the roads that lead us
    To drugs or Jesus

    My whole life, I've tried to run, I've tried to hide
    From the stained-glass windows in my mind
    Refusing to let God's light shine down on me, down on me
    Everybody just wants to get high
    Sit and watch a perfect world go by
    We're all looking for love and meaning in our lives
    There's not much space between us
    Drugs or Jesus

    Everybody wants acceptance, we all just want some proof
    Everyone's just looking for the truth
    Everybody just wants to get high
    Sit and watch a perfect world go by
    We're all looking for love and meaning in our lives
    We follow the roads that lead us
    To drugs or Jesus
    Oh, I need you Jesus
    Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

    Hallelujah... Writer/s: AIMEE MAYO, BRETT JAMES, CHRIS LINDSEY, TROY VERGES
