God Knows - Bob Dylan
by Bob Dylan
God knows you ain't pretty,
God knows it's true.
God knows there ain't anybody
Ever gonna take the place of you.
God knows it's a struggle,
God knows it's a crime,
God knows there's gonna be no more water
But fire next time.
God didn't call it treason,
God didn't call it wrong,
It was supposed to last a season
But it's been so strong for so long.
God knows it's fragile,
God knows everything,
God knows it could snap apart right now
Just like putting scissors to a string.
God knows it's terrifying,
God sees it all unfold,
There's a million reasons for you to be crying
You been so bold and so cold.
God knows that when you see it,
God knows you've got to weep,
God knows the secrets of your heart,
He'll tell them to you when you're asleep.
God knows there's a river,
God knows how to make it flow,
God knows you ain't gonna be taking
Nothing with you when you go.
God knows there's a purpose,
God knows there's a chance,
God knows you can rise above the darkest hour
Of any circumstance.
God knows there's a heaven,
God knows it's out of sight,
God knows we can get all the way from here to there
Even if we've got to walk a million miles by candlelight.
