Preacher can you save my soul?/ I've been on some roads you might
Call low/ Preacher can you save my soul?/ You've got the scales
Where do they say I'll go?
A runaway train man/ Is gonna teach you how to pray now/ And if I
Make it out alive/ I've got to pay it back somehow now/ April's
Sister's got a man/ he comes from the moroccan land/ And if she
Want's to marry him you know/ She's got to turn into a Muslim,
That's true/ Oh but how can you replace me/ By throwing roses from
The balcony/ They're falling in the isles now/ Woe is me...
Why can't you hold me, why can't you save me, preacher why can't
You preach me, almost now/ Why can't you make me, why can't you break
Me now, preacher why can't you teach me, I got to know?
Latin music cadillacs/ And trash can gambling games/ the Pentecostal
On the block/ Was life fishing today/ I was on the corner just
Gambling the same/ When a hand from the sky took my dice away. It
Wasn't good for me because the dice had weight I knew how to throw
Them on any number face that's true/ But I can't even stand up/ So
Many wonderful people here/ They're all done with nothing planet
Dreams/ I'll take it with me
I asked once of a poor queer teacher I knew/ What was it like to live
In a hell someone else made up for you?/ He said my family they're
Just covering up for life/ They've been doing it all their lives.
And they disowned but you know that they love me too.
Faith is retrospective now/ You only know if it was true in the end/
Some get to heaven on purpose/ But some get it while they can.
Preacher can I save your soul/? Do you know every single thing I
Know/ Preacher can I save your soul?/ I know it's stupid but it's
Happened before/ Yeah preacher can I pray for god?/ Can't understand
About all these losing hearts/ Preacher now what do you say?/ Is it
Not OK now to pray that way?/
Preacher can you save my soul?/ I've got it packed up and ready to
Go/ Preacher can you save my soul/ I've been on some roads that you
Might call low/ Preacher could I pray for god?/ Can't understand
About all these losing hearts/ Preacher now what do you say?/ I've
Got to know.
