Jesus, sweet Jesus if you're listening
Can you pass me to your pa.
I'm having a hard time understanding
Why he's so cruel and demanding
With his love.

Darling, sweet darling keep whispering
I'll find you through this din.
Sitting and watching,
Two flames busy dancing
To our love.


Grab on to this moment, inhale it
And hold it inside.
Savour its sweetness,
Yearn for the slide.

Jesus, sweet Jesus if you're listening
Can you pass me to your pa.
I'm having a hard time understanding
Why he's so discriminating
With his love.

How about "One Soul Now" or "Why This One" - or anything off of the "'Neath Your Covers" EP that came with this CD ? This is really my least favorite song on this CD. Right - download it! s

This song very simply and beautifully describes where I am at with my realtionship with God. I don't think He is descriminating with who he loves, but it seems to me that he is descriminating with how He communicates that love. Seems like I have to jump through a lot of hoops to get that communicated love. Hey I love this song it makes me think :clap:
Ironically this love is right in front of our face; don't try so hard to find it.
WAY too much jesus crap for my taste.
I was about to comment on how awful this is but I see I already did. :roll:
heard a great interview with Margo and Michael recently on NPR. https://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=3922701

Wow, Bill, you are playing way too much Cowboy Junkies....at least its not the same song over and over. But way too much Cowboy Junkies. How about a few underplayed or not played at all artists such as Hothouse Flowers, Mojave 3, Richard Buckner, Gillian Welch and Matthew Ryan? :)
i have to second this. the junkies are okay, but we've had such a huge, morose dose of them lately...

A song could do worse than to make one think about God's love. Consider this, He loved US first. If He is unchanging, then a missed communication is probably coming from us. Love him back. Answers will become clearer. Thanks for sharing your insight.

Comatose
Yes. There is a noise worse than that of fingernails on a chalkboard. :frustrated: :puke:

Yes - this tune is "OK". Some much better music on it though. Try to dig up the " 'neath your covers" that came along with it (at least at the start) too. s Skeletor wrote:
