lyrics

There's a keyhole in my can of beer
There's an eye behind it
Sizing me up and staring me down
and my hangover's coming
the thorny crown of dawn is falling over me

Oh, love is cruel
Love is truly absurd
Jesus almost got me
I don't know how many prayers he overheard

There's a new leaf in the garden
and all the buds bloom open like eyes
And the hand that folds the tide in the sea
is pouring a drink and sliding it over toward me

Oh, love is cruel
Love is truly absurd
Jesus almost got me
I don't know how many prayers he overheard
