Lyrics

I was a good kid

I wouldn't do you no harm I was a nice kid With a nice paper-round

Forgive me any pain I may have brung to you With God's help I know I'll always be near to you

But Jesus hurt me When He deserted me But I have forgiven Jesus For all the desire He placed in me when there's nothing I can do With this desire

I was good kid Through hail and snow I'd go Just to moon you I carried my heart in my hand Do you understand? Do you understand?

But Jesus hurt me When He deserted me But I have forgiven Jesus For all of the love He placed in me When there's no one I can turn to with this love

Monday - humiliation Tuesday - suffocation Wednesday - condescension Thursday - is pathetic By Friday - life has killed me By Friday - life has killed me

Oh pretty one Oh pretty one

Why did you give me So much desire? When there is nowhere I can go To offload this desire

Why did you give me So much love In a loveless world When there is no one I can turn to To unlock all this love

And Why did you stick me in Self-deprecating bones and skin Jesus - do you hate me?

Why did you stick me in Self-deprecating bones and skin Do you hate me? Do you hate me? Do you hate me? Do you hate me? Do you hate me?

(Yes...)
