Song Lyrics

So, Mexico
Say a prayer, for our country then
Please

Please?
Uh

So you never knew love… ‘til you crossed the line of grace
And you never felt wanted… ‘til you’d someone slap your face
And you never felt alive… ‘til you’d almost wasted away

You had to win, you couldn’t just pass
The smartest ass, at the top of the class
Your flying colors, your family tree
And all your lessons in history

Please… please… please…
Get up off your knees
Please… please… please…
Leave me out

So you never knew… how low you’d stoop to make that call
And you never knew… what was on the ground until they made you crawl
So you never knew… that the heaven you keep you stole

Your Catholic blues, your convent shoes
Your stick-on tattoos, now they’re making the news
Your holy war, your northern star
Your sermon on the mount from the boot of your car

Please… please… please…
Get up off your knees
Please… please… please…
Leave me out

‘Cause love is big you say it’s bigger than us
But love is not what you’re thinking of

September, streets capsizing
Spilling over and down the drain
Shards of glass, splinters like rain
But you could only feel your own pain

October, talk getting nowhere
November, December, remember
Are we just starting again?

Please… please… please…
Get up off your knees now
Please… Ohh-oh-oh-oh

So love is big, it’s bigger than us
But love is not what you’re thinking of
What you’re thinking of

[Hallelujah / Oh yeah scat singing]

Oh, high

It’s what lovers deal
It’s what lovers steal
You know I’ve found it hard to receive
But you my love… I could never believe

Please… please… please…
Get up off your knees now
Please… (please… please…)
Get up off your knees now

Please…
Please…
Hoo…

Please?
Please~
