Face Of God

Artists: John hiatt

Tell me how much more suffering
Before you see the face of God?
Tell me how much more suffering
Before you see the face of God?
Now my eyes are blind from crying
Don't know how many more tears I've got!
They say God is a devil,
Until you look him in the eye.
They say God is a devil,
Until you look him in the eye.
Well I can barely lift my head up,
And sometimes I don't even wanna try.
I'm not looking for love, baby
Looking high and low,
Can anybody tell me where did our love go!?
Well, how much sufferin'
Before you see the eyes of God
Cause I'm busting down to nothing
God it's a long dark road I'm on.
How does them show up yesterday?
Like a rain come down from a cloud.
I just didn't show up yesterday
Like a rain come down from a cloud.
I was drawin' blood from the enemy
Long before my neighbors got proud.
They ride a great big fancy car,
Then like to cut the grass they sow
They got a great big fancy car,
They like to cut they grass they sow
I'm doing cartwheel on the front lawn
I'm still coming to the kitchen door.
Tell me how much more suffering
Before you see the eyes of God?
Tell me how much more suffering
Before you see the eyes of God?
Now don't mind shit, baby
Why don't you show me what you got?
