Lyrics - God Forsaken Shore

Whenever you try to win and you lose

They say it’s your choice but you can’t choose

Whenever I’m not with you this loneliness ensues

And wherever I am walking I’m just loneliness in shoes

 

Oh lord don’t leave me on this godforsaken shore

I was so certain you would see me I’m not certain anymore

And you turn around and you look at me while they’re kicking down the door

I was so certain you would see me I’m not certain anymore

 

Come, come, come yes they’re coming for you

And the night may still be young so what on earth are you gonna do

Whenever I’m not with you this loneliness ensues

And wherever I am walking I’m just loneliness in shoes

 

Oh lord don’t leave me on this godforsaken shore

I was so certain you would see me I’m not certain anymore

And don’t you turn around and look at me

While they’re kicking down the door

I was so certain you would see me I’m not certain anymore

 

Who were you to say what’s right

Who was I to do you wrong

When heaven and hell are divided by the thinnest of lines

Is this punishment for the crime or the passing of time

 

Who were you, who were you, who were you, who were you, who were you

 

Who were you to say what’s right

Who was I to do you wrong

When heaven and hell are divided by the thinnest of lines

Is this punishment for the crime or the passing of time

It’s just the passing of time

 

Oh lord don’t leave me on this godforsaken shore

I was so certain you would see me I’m not certain anymore

And don’t you turn around and you look at me

While they’re kicking down the door

I was so certain you would see me I’m not certain anymore

 

No no not anymore

Not anymore
