I Shall Be...
Home Up Mess of Things Kind of Love... No Words All My Love Just A Little Blue Long Way From... My Father's Son I Shall Be...

 

I Shall Be Healed

 

Everything here lately

Everything more or less

Seems to slowly becoming

Such a beautiful mess

From the gates west of Eden

To the oceans leading out

Round here everybodyís bleeding

Or everybodyís filled with doubt

Yeah and out on the horizon

They say the truth is revealed

 

Say the word

Just say the word

Just say the word

And I shall be healed

 

Yeah my mother and my father

Yeah they always believed

Yeah but me I felt different

 I always felt so deceived

And I went looking uptown

Been looking downtown too

I even went to the west side

I went looking for you

One day in South Carolina

I saw you in a cotton field

 

Say the word

Just say the word

Just say the word

And I shall be healed

 

Many is the hour

That Iíve seen go to waste

Your heart wilted like a flower

How will I find you in this place

 

I heard you were seen on Ashland

On your way to Wicker Park

They say that you looked different

And you were standing in the dark

You were there for just a minute

And when I looked back you were gone

Yeah, you were always like that

You love to keep on keeping on

And then I stood at an altar

The weight had caused me to kneel

 

Say the word

Just say the word

Just say the word

And I shall be healed

 

Just say the word

Just say the word

And I shall be healed
