Beautiful Love Of God - Lyrics by Roches, The


Lyrics

Am i alone in this world
Can somebody hear me
Or be near me
Am i blind to the love
The beautiful love of god

Here i am
Standing before a crowd
Trying to belong
Terrified of hiding
Asking you to listen to my song
Asking you to listen to me
Am i alone in this world

A woman i know
I saw her in the street
She was selling books
No family no money
I could not find a way to say hello
I could not find a way to say hello
Am i alone in this world

Late last night
A man at the garbage can
Was picking through the crap
And the neighborhood boys
Starting beating him up with a baseball bat
Beating him up with a baseball bat

Am i alone in this world
Can somebody hear me
Or be near me
Am i blind to the love
The beautiful love of god
