MStrange men in love with strange Gods made strange rules we abide by.
And I always thought that's alright. It didn't bother me.
At least until I fell in love with you.
The world's at war my friend said, and it's all because of God.
Another friend would argue with him, but I didn't care.
Until my mother said not to be with you.
Not even to be seen with you.
And something in me broke.
I never cared for God and never thought
Anyone else cared too much. It all seemed
Just something trivial. "God Bless, God be with you,
Praise God" I thought these were only words.
I thought God was only a word.
And then when I told my Dad of you,
He gave me the coldest stare,
And in the coldest words told me to stop.
"Are you insane? What will people say?"
And said I couldn't be with you.
My mother always said God was in my life,
That in everything I did His presence was there,
But I never felt God more in my life
Until they said I couldn't be in love with you.
