I remember Sunday morning getting up when I was a kid,
Headed down towards that steeple, that's where folks back then did,
We'd sing all five of them verses from Amazing Grace,
Then daddy dropped harden money in the offering plate.
After Sunday school it was Davis brother's chicken,
Tea was sweeter than molasses, funny how time passes.
Never knew back then how my life would be now,
How far I wonder off that narrow road I went down.

Don't know where I'm going or where it's all gone,
Sometimes I feel like I sold my soul for a song.
I'm surrounded by all of these six screen dreams,
Standing in the spotlight and can't see a thing.
I'm sick and damn tired of all the hustling and scheming,
I'd give it all up to get back to even.
I'm lookin' 'round for something I can still believe in,
I'm dreaming of angels, but living with demons.

I think about my life now and what it used to be,
Now that I've seen behind the curtain, nothing's new to me.
I've known some fallen angels try to take me down
And I've got a few good time buddies, whiskey bent and hell bound.
Another sleepless night with a rod guitar,
It's screaming in my veins, about to drive me insane.
But I woke up Sunday morning to the church bells ringing
And somewhere in my heart there's still a choir singing.

Don't know where I'm going or where it's all gone,
Sometimes I feel like I sold my soul for a song.
I'm surrounded by all of these six screen dreams,
Standing in the spotlight and can't see a thing.
I'm sick and damn tired of all the hustling and scheming,
I'd give it all up to get back to even.
I'm lookin' 'round for something I can still believe in,
I'm dreaming of angels, but living with demons.

Hey, how You doing?
I know it's been a while.
I've been running crazy and that ain't really no excuse, but
This whole world is running crazy,
People killing each other, fighting wars,
We forgot about You and a lot of places
And the truth is, we still really need You,
I really need You.
So I promise I won't stay away so long next time.
I'll be back sooner than later.
Thanks for always carrying me when I was too weak to walk.
Well, I gotta get out of here, but I'll talk to You again soon.
Thanks, God.
