Saving Grace

“One time around the block 

Two times around the clock 
Three times, don’t cross the little lady (lady) So pretty and, oh, so bold 
Got a heart full of gold on a lonely road 
She said, “I don’t even think that God can save me” (save me) (Am I) gainin’ ground 
(Am I) losin’ face 
(Have I) lost and found my saving grace 
Thankful for the gift my angels gave me 

Born alone, we die alone 
‘n’ I’m just sittin’ here by the phone 
Waitin’ for the Lord to send my callin’ 

Street wise from the boulevard 
Jesus only knows that she tries too hard 
She’s only tryin’ to keep the sky from fallin’ 

Any man who says it’s Heaven and Hell 
Prob’ly got somethin’ useless to sell 
You ask me if I’m saved, but what’s it to ya? 

Blow a quarter, cop another eight 
You’re runnin’ out of high, you’re losin’ your faith 
Throw your hands up and scream, “Hallelujah” 

Hallelujah, Hallelujah 
Hallelujah, Hallelujah 

One time around the sun 
Another year older and my work ain’t done 
It’s time for me to write the final chapter (chapter) 

Deal the cards and roll the dice 
Sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll are my only vice 
Tryin’ to figure out just what’s here after (here after) 

Hallelujah, Hallelujah 
Hallelujah, Hallelujah 
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
